A tragic hit and run accident has claimed lives along North Westnedge Avenue in Cooper Township north of Kalamazoo.

The incident occurred Tuesday (June 7) evening near Markin Glen Park. WOOD-TV is reporting that 9 bicyclists were struck.

The bicyclists were struck by an oncoming pickup truck as they rode along Westnedge. Witnesses said the truck was driving erratically in the opposite direction of the bicyclists.

Markus Eberhard said he was leaving Markin Glen Park after fishing when someone shouted at him to watch out. He said the pickup nearly ran over his foot. He said before he could “tell the bikers to move or watch out,” the pickup hit them.

“I saw a bunch of bikes hit the front of his truck and a couple of them flew,” Eberhard said.

WWMT-TV is reporting that a driver is in custody.
