BEND, OR -- A 21-year-old Bend man turned himself in Monday, telling Sheriff's Detectives he was responsible for a weekend hit and run that sent a bicyclist to the hospital. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says Travis Roberts was driving a blue 1997 Toyota Tacoma Saturday morning, near Skyline Ranch Road and Macalpine Loop. He allegedly hit 61-year-old Roy Holtvedt while he road his bike, causing serious injuries.
The truck, seen in surveillance photos released Sunday, has been seized as evidence and the Sheriff's Office says Roberts' 26-year-old passenger has also been contacted and interviewed.
Roberts is charged with Assault II, Failing to Perform the Duties of a Driver and Reckless Driving. He's scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday afternoon.
