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.
