A woman could be facing more serious charges after a man struck while riding his bicycle on Military Highway Tuesday night died from his injuries Wednesday.
Chesapeake officials say the man was traveling westbound near the Gilmerton Bridge when he was struck around 8:50pm by a vehicle driven by 54-year old Barbara Ann Beck.
Investigators believe Beck was also traveling westbound on Military Highway when her vehicle ran off the roadway, striking the bicyclist.
Beck has been charged with DUI, but authorities say additional charges are expected.
Police have been unable to identify the victim. They said the man didn't have any identification on him.
The victim is a black male, approximately 40-45 years of age, with a tattoo on his right forearm of the word 'LOVE.' He was riding a blue Trek bike.
Anyone with information on the man's identity is asked to call the Chesapeake Police at 382-6251.
It is still a bit light here at that time, so the it was dark excuse won't wash.
