A 78 year old Ventura County man is dead, after he was struck, and killed while riding a bicycle.
It happened yesterday afternoon, on Tierra Rejada Road east of Highway 23, between Moorpark and Simi Valley. The CHP says a car headed eastbound on Tierra Rejada hit a bike ridden by Bernard Cooper. The Simi Valley man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say the driver of the car, Nicolas Santiago of Ridgecrest, initially fled the scene, but then returned. The 20 year old man was arrested on a felony hit and run charge.
