Delaware State Police have charged a Florida man with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol after a bicyclist was struck and killed in Rehoboth.
It happened about 2 a.m. Sunday on Coastal Highway. Troopers say 44-year-old Russell Henman of Snow Hill, Md., was riding his bike when a Jeep operated by 38-year-old Brian Meegan of Fort Lauderdale struck the bike.
Police say Henman was thrown onto the hood and was carried about 400 feet until the Jeep hit a curb, throwing him to the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers say Meegan fled the scene, stopped in a parking lot, and removed the bicycle from under the vehicle. He was arrested a short time later.
Meegan is being held on $27,700 cash bail.

Rosa Maria Rivera-Kim
A woman turned herself in to police more than six weeks after they say she lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a poolside cabana in Fort Lauderdale, killing a pregnant tourist.
The South Florida SunSentinel ( http://sunsent.nl/LWK9wP) reports 34-year-old Rosa Maria Rivera-Kim bonded out of the Broward County Jail early Thursday. She faces DUI manslaughter charges in the death of 27-year-old Alanna DeMella of Medford, Mass.
DeMella and husband Michael were visiting the Riverside Hotel when the March 18 crash happened. She was seven months pregnant.
Rivera-Kim’s lawyer told police she didn’t want to talk to the media. Police didn’t release the lawyer’s name.
DeMella’s family issued a statement saying they’re relieved that charges have been filed.
Police say Rivera-Kim’s blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit.
