A Las Vegas man has been arrested, accused of being the minivan driver whose passenger fell out a window while leaning to slap a bicyclist. Both the passenger and the bicyclist died, and the driver did not stop.
The arrested man is Rodrigo Cruz, 22, and faces charges of open murder, failure to stop at the scene of an accident and violating a condition of parole.
