UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania driver has been jailed on vehicular homicide and other charges after police say he struck a bicyclist and fled only to have police catch up to him miles away.

Twenty-two-year-old Roman Herrin, of Greensburg, has also been charged with driving under the influence of a controlled substance in the Monday morning crash that killed 47-year-old Gary Lewellen.

State police say Lewellen was riding his bicycle in North Union Township when he was struck by Herrin’s pickup shortly after 10:30 a.m. Monday.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Herrin, who also faces several traffic citations in the crash.
