PICAYUNE, Miss. (AP) — Two people have been arrested a hit-and-run incident on Aug. 22 that killed cyclist Luiz Perez of Lumberton.
Chief Deputy Shane Tucker with the Pearl River County Sheriff's Department tells the Picayune Item (http://bit.ly/16veRHd ) that 38-year-old Thomas Jamison Bullock and 26-year-old Brandace R. Green, both of Purvis, are each charged with felony leaving an accident scene causing death.
Tucker says Bullock is also charged with manslaughter and failure to yield to a bicyclist.
Tucker says drivers aren't supposed to come closer than three feet to a cyclist.
Perez was riding west on a county road when he was hit by a vehicle. Perez's family became concerned after Perez never came home and went out searching for him. They discovered him in a ditch and called the sheriff's department.
