A gentleman named Ignacio Giraldo was tragically killed while riding his bicycle last Thursday in Caldwell County, North Carolina near Grandfather Mountain. Following the wreck, the driver of the vehicle fled the scene. Mr. Giraldo died two days following the wreck.
Police now indicate that the driver of the vehicle has been arrested in Granville County, North Carolina which is just north of Raleigh. The 55 year old man was charged with felony hit and run although it would seem likely that there would be a misdemeanor death by motor vehicle charge as well.
