Omaha police have arrested a driver who they say seriously injured a bicyclist and left the scene. It happened Tuesday afternoon around around 1:30 p.m. near 52nd and Emmet.
21-year-old Tyree Davis was arrested after investigators say he was driving a rented Chevy Cruze when the vehicle struck a bicyclist and left the scene. Sgt. Joe Collins says police arrested the man following a brief search.
He says 45-year-old General Swayzer suffered broken vertebrae in his neck, several lacerations to his scalp and possibly paralysis. He was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center.
His condition is unclear but Collins says he is expected to survive the injuries.
