WACO, Texas (AP) — Waco police say a Baylor University student was killed while bicycling with his girlfriend when a vehicle struck him and then fled.

Police say that 19-year-old David Grotberg was hit late Thursday night. Police say witnesses told officers that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it struck the bicyclist. The driver didn’t stop and fled the scene.

Grotberg’s girlfiend, also a Baylor student, was not injured but she did see the crash.

Grotberg, who is from Fergus Falls, Minnesota, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

    Darn shame we are driving so many of our most promising Minnesota citizens out of State and replacing them with a flood of non-English speaking, unemployable, malcontent welfare radicals who wish to harm us.
