GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A Scott County grand jury has indicted a man accused of hitting and killing a Lexington bicyclist in what investigators say was a hit-and-run during a Georgetown cycling event.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports 29-year-old Odilon Paz-Salvador was indicted Thursday on charges of murder, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, fleeing or evading police and driving without a license. Salvador is accused of killing 57-year-old lawyer Mark Hinkel in May during the Horsey Hundred cycling event.

Police say Paz-Salvador drove three miles with a seriously injured Hinkel in the back of his pickup truck before Georgetown police stopped him.

Paz-Salvador’s family members have said that the crash was a complete accident.

Paz-Salvador’s bail is set at $500,000. He is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 7.
