A teenage driver has been arrested after he allegedly used a car to ram into at least one car as well as a cyclist in Las Vegas last weekend. The cyclist succumbed to his injuries and was reported dead after the incident.

Andreas Probst, the man who died after being hit, was a retired police chief who had served in law enforcement for 35 years. The teenage driver is reportedly in custody under allegations of killing Probst and has additionally been associated with several other vehicle thefts throughout that morning, according to police. 

A video of the teenager driving the car and seemingly intentionally running into a car as well as a person on a bicycle has gone viral on social media. It appears to be filmed by a passenger riding in shotgun.

"Alright go, go go go," a person can be heard saying in the photo just before the driver sideswipes a white Toyota Corolla.

"B**** ass n*****!" yelled a person in the vehicle. "Stop talking sh**, b****!"

Shortly after that, a person says "Get his a**," just before the driver runs over a man biking on the side of the road.

"That n**** knocked out!" declared a person in the car. 

The man in the clip who had been struck while riding a bicycle appears to be Probst, who was pronounced dead after the collision.

Nevada's Clark County coroner’s office stated the bicyclist Andreas Probst, 64, died at University Medical Center.

The Metropolitan Police Department has reported that a minor driving a 2016 Hyundai Elantra was speeding excessively, struck the back of a bike, and fled the scene. 

The Probst couple was set to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary next month, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

“Being around him, it was like being next to a ray of sunshine,” said Andreas' daughter, Taylor Probst. “He was always laughing, always smiling, offering you support, life advice, career advice.”

Andreas Probst has since been honored with a white ghost bike that was put up to represent his love for cycling.
