Bicyclist struck by car in Boston has died

Man was hit by car in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood

BOSTON (AP) – Boston police say a bicyclist struck by a car that then drove away from the scene last weekend has died.

Police say 29-year-old Richard Archer died in the early morning hours Tuesday. He was taken to the hospital after he was struck in the city’s Back Bay neighborhood at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday.

Archer lived in South Boston.

Based on surveillance images, police think Archer was struck by a 2015 to 2017 silver Toyota Camry with out-of-state, possibly New York  license plates. The car likely had damage to its front end and roof.

Responding to a tip, police found a vehicle fitting that description in the nearby Boston Common garage on Tuesday morning. It had a cracked windshield and front-end body damage.
