Police decliend Wednesday evening to release the name of the person arrested, saying details would be made public Thursday.

Investigators determined Valtier was riding his bicycle westbound on U.S. 180 in the far right lane when he was apparently struck by a vehicle, which then left the scene. Valtier had just his job in Wolters Industrial Park and was heading home when he was struck, police said.
