Police have arrested the suspect in an Oct. 16 hit and run crash near Preston that left a bicyclist fighting for his life in a Utah hospital.

The male bicyclist was left critically injured when struck by a Volkswagen Jetta sedan driven by Christopher James Ward, 33, of Smithfield, Utah, and wasn’t found until hours later because Ward drove from the scene and never reported the crash, authorities said.
