HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) -
Louisiana State Police continue to investigate a fatal hit and run crash that involved a bicyclist from Hammond, LA.
The crash happened just after 10 p.m. Sunday on LA 1064 near the intersection with LA 443.
Troopers say Van Johnson, 53, of Hammond, was riding his bicycle eastbound in the westbound lane of 1064.
Atrell Anderson, 19, was driving eastbound behind Johnson in a 1998 Oldsmobile.
Anderson attempted to pass a slower vehicle and crossed the double yellow center line of the roadway traveling eastbound in the westbound lane. Upon entering the westbound lane, the front end of the Oldsmobile hit the back of Johnson's bicycle throwing Johnson from the bike. After impact, Anderson fled the scene continuing east on LA 1064.
Johnson was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner's Office.
While conducting the hit and run investigation, Troopers found the Oldsmobile abandoned near the crash scene and shortly thereafter located Anderson attempting to turn himself in at the Amite Police Department.
Anderson submitted to a breath alcohol test showing no detectable signs of alcohol in his system. He was subsequently booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on charges of negligent homicide, hit and run driving, passing in a no passing zone, and no driver's license.
