Bicyclist Andy Heines dies after collision with alleged hit-and-run driver Alexis Derise Jr, 40, at Paul Jones and SPID in Corpus Christi, Texas
Alexis Derise Jr, 40, was arrested Wednesday morning after police say he was driving a green and tan pickup truck along Paul Jones near the intersection of South Padre Island Drive and hit a bicyclist, then fled the scene.
According to CCPD, Derise admitted he had been involved in an accident. He is now in the Nueces County Jail being held on a $50,000 bond. He is charged with causing an accident involving an injury or death.
A local group of bikers is inviting the public to participate in a silent ride in honor of Heines. They'll meet at Dorothy Adkins Middle School Thursday, July 28th at 6 p.m. They'll hold a brief moment of silence and then start the ride.
Cantu and other members of the biking community say they've become more aware of road safety after the death of Andy Heines. Some have even added extra safety lights to their bikes.
They believe this PSA will remind drivers they have responsibility as well.
