Retired Cop Killed in Teen Hit and Run

Retired Cop Killed in a Hit and Run

Andreas Probst, a retired police chief from Bell, California, was hit by a car while riding his mountain bike in the bike lane on Aug. 14. The accident occurred around 6 a.m. near Tenaya Way and Centennial Parkway, involving a 2016 Hyundai Elantra.

Probst passed away at University Medical Center.

Police have concluded that the fatal hit-and-run crash in northwest Las Vegas was intentional.

According to a viral video, a teenager deliberately crashed a stolen car into a retired police chief, Andreas Probst, in a fatal hit-and-run incident in Las Vegas, leaving his widow shattered.

The video depicted the driver asking his friend, “Ready?” while the passenger (who is laughing) replies,

“Yeah, hit his ass”. The driver honked three times before colliding with Probst’s back wheel, causing him to be thrown over the hood of the car. [1]

The 17-year-old driver of the Hyundai was arrested by police this week, and the search for the passenger is still ongoing.

Probst’s body was found with life-threatening injuries, and he was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Probst’s family described him as a positive and bright individual. He had a career in law enforcement for 35 years before retiring in 2009 and transitioning to a remote position in global security. [2]

The driver has been apprehended at present. However, law enforcement officials are still actively pursuing the whereabouts of the passenger in the vehicle.

If anyone has any information about this hit-and-run incident, you are urged to contact the Las Vegas Police Department.
