LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska authorities say a drunk driver has fatally struck a 57-year-old cyclist.

Lancaster County Sgt. Mike Peschong tells the Lincoln Journal Star that Douglas Dalke of Lincoln was attempting to turn when a Chevy Prizm hit him from behind.

He says a 26-year-old Kansas man was arrested and faces a felony charge of motor vehicle homicide and a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. He hasn’t been charged.

The road was closed for more than four hours while authorities investigated.
