A fatal hit-and-run involving a car and a bicycle may have been intentional, according to Las Vegas police.
Police have gathered information indicating the collision could have been the result of an altercation at a Las Vegas bar, and have released a composite sketch of a possible suspect.
On Dec. 30, 51-year-old Steven Olsen was involved in a confrontation at the Dew Drop Inn on 4200 Boulder Highway with two men known only as "Bob" and "John," police said.
According to police, the confrontation escalated and moved to the parking lot. Olsen eventually went back inside, while the two men remained outside.
Upon seeing Olsen leave on his bicycle, the men entered a white mid-sized vehicle similar to a Chevrolet Lumina or a Ford Taurus. The car struck Olsen and then left the scene at a high rate of speed.
Olsen was taken to Sunrise Hospital where he later died.
According to bar patrons, the two men had been to the bar before. The composite sketches are of the man known as "Bob;" they include one with glasses and a facial scar, and one without those features.
The car is believed to be owned by the man known as "John." It might have damage to the front end, hood or windshield as a result of the collision.
