Police say a 29-year-old Boston cyclist struck in a hit-and-run crash on Sunday in the city's Back Bay neighborhood has died from his injuries.
Richard "Rick" Archer, of South Boston, was struck at around 3:19 a.m. near Commonwealth Avenue and Clarendon Street and immediately transported to an area hospital. He was pronounced dead Tuesday morning, police said in a statement.
Boston police received a call at around 6 a.m. Tuesday saying a car matching the description of the suspect's vehicle — a 2015 to 2017 silver Toyota Camry — was found in the Boston Common Garage.
Police Commissioner William Evans said he believes it's the vehicle involved in the crash.
"If you are the driver, I urge you to turn yourself in," Evans told reporters. "Unfortunately we've got a family out there grieving, but we're going to get who's responsible."
