Lynchburg, VA – June 4 – A local man was indicted Monday on a felony hit-and-run charge that left a bicyclist dead last March.
According to official reports by newsadvance.com, the accident occurred on March 7 around 2:30 a.m. when Jeremy Lee Jarry, 21, struck Michael Alan Jones, 53, a homeless man who was suffering from substance abuse problems.
Officials said Jarry crossed the centerline on Harrison Street when he crashed into Jones, who was riding his bicycle at the time of the incident.
Investigators said Jones’ body rolled onto the hood of Jarry’s red Ford pickup truck and was carried for about a block before it fell off onto the street.
Jarry was captured and charged when police located a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac in Campbell County that matched the vehicle in the crash.
Jarry will go to trial on July 16 and now faces up to ten years in prison.
