DES MOINES, IA - A man who was convicted for a fatal hit-and-run collision with a motorcyclist at SW 11th St and Amos Ave in July 2019 has been arrested for probation violation, according to KCCI.

A then 23-year-old male driving a pickup truck struck and killed a 59-year-old male riding a motorcycle east on Amos Ave.

The pickup truck driver claimed he fled the area following the collision because he feared a witness would attack him.

The driver received a five-year suspended sentence in July 2020 for the incident.

The driver will serve two weeks in jail for his probation violation.
