Posted on Friday, December 3rd, 2021 at 11:59 am    

HOUSTON, TX — A 24-year-old man has been charged for his role in the death of a bicyclist early Monday in northwest Houston’s Greater Inwood area, according to KHOU11.

The fatal incident occurred in the 3100 block of West Little York Road at around 2:15 a.m.

Houston police said the driver was traveling at high speed and swerving when his Toyota pickup truck fatally struck the cyclist, a 38-year-old man. Shortly after, the driver lost control of the pickup as it slammed into a power pole and brick wall. The vehicle flipped over at least once, ejecting a 19-year-old passenger.

Authorities confirmed the cyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Both the driver and his passenger were transported to an area hospital with injuries considered non-life-threatening.

Responding officers said the driver was later arrested for an investigation into suspected DUI. He has since been formally charged with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault.
