The man suspected of striking and killing Mike Wang on Dexter Ave last year has pleaded not guilty to the charge of felony hit and run. Erlin Garcia-Reyes, 28, is being held on $500,000 bail.
Garcia-Reyes, a native of Honduras, allegedly made a quick turn in front of Wang, who was in the bike lane. Wang died from his injuries.
Garcia-Reyes was arrested earlier this month following an unrelated hit and run charge involving a gas station window. Nobody was injured in that incident.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement have placed a detainer on Garcia-Reyes, a sign that he may not have legal immigration status.
