Earlier the road had been completely closed. The bicyclist died from the impact. Christine Dietz, a former nurse, was driving through the accident scene and tried to give the man CPR, but it was too late. "I was driving along going west on Oakland Park Boulevard," she said, "and I saw something in the road to see if I could help, identified myself as a nurse, went over, checked the gentleman's carotid pulse, but my hand on his chest. He just moved and it was like his last breath." If you have any information on who may behind this fatal hit and run, call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
