Driver faces homicide charge in bike accident

This happened about 50 feet from our front door. I woke up and saw the lights flashing against my bedroom wall Saturday night/Sunday morning.

From the Inquirer:

Police charged a man with homicide by vehicle and driving under the influence after he struck and killed a bicyclist who was crossing Roosevelt Boulevard in the Hunting Park section of the city shortly before 2 a.m. yesterday.

Police did not name the suspect, who was in custody. The identity of the victim, a white man in his 40s, had not been determined yesterday.

The accident occurred near the intersection with Seventh Street, as the bicyclist ignored a traffic signal and crossed the busy highway, according to police spokeswoman Tanya Little.

Though the bicyclist had caused the crash, Little said, the driver was tested for alcohol and was found to be driving while under the influence. - Jan Hefler
The article is wrong. It was at Roosevelt and 9th St.
