    A man died after Las Vegas police said he hung out of a car and
    struck a bicyclist, killing her.

    On Sunday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department
    responded to a report of two people who had been hit by a car,
    according to a news release. Police said they arrived and found
    a woman and man, who died at the location of fatal incident.

    The man was the passenger in a car driven by 22-year-old Rodrigo
    Cruz, police said, and he leaned out of the window, pushing a
    female bicyclist to the ground. The man then fell out of the car
    and collided with a light pole. Officers apprehended Cruz, who
    is accused of fleeing the scene before law enforcement arrived.

    Investigators said the passenger in Cruz’s car initially tried
    to hit two pedestrians on the sidewalk by hanging out of the
    minivan, but missed before hitting the bicyclist, according to

    “Senseless is an understatement,” Lt. Raymond Spencer said,
    according to the station. “You have a woman who was out riding
    her bicycle and they pull up next to her and strike her, causing
    her to die. It’s an absolute senseless act. There’s no reason
    behind this that I can tell you why it occurred, other than
    complete stupidity.”

    Cruz was booked on accusations of open murder, duty to stop at
    the scene of an accident and violating his parole, police said.

    The Clark County Coroner’s office will release the names of the
    deceased and the cause of death, according to the release, which
    did not provide a specific timetable for the information
    becoming public.
