Ricky Prezioso held on $5,000 bail
A 41-year old Swampscott man has been charged in connection with a hit-and-run crash that killed a bicyclist in Charlestown.
The incident happened in Sullivan Square near Cambridge and Spice streets at 1:40 p.m. Thursday.
Ricky Prezioso was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Jake Wark.
Prezioso was held on $5,000 bail. He will return to court on May 19.
The man who was killed has not been identified.
Police said Thursday night that they had located a truck that had been described as a sanitation truck with black lettering and a “person of interest” was being interviewed.
“We ran up to the top of the street to see if there were any signs of the gentleman moving,” one witness said.
“There are a lot of bikes — every day — and the trucks and the cars that come by here, they don’t stop at the stop sign,” a local business owner said.
