With the support of his friends, the driver stops in the bike lane behind him, honks and deliberately crashes directly into his rear tire with a loud bang, sending the cyclist flying. The passenger films the man lying helpless on the side of the road behind the vehicle. “Damn, that black got knocked out!” says the passenger as the driver is heard stepping on the accelerator. Probst was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, according to the Review Journal. It is unclear whether the passenger who filmed the murder has been charged with a crime. The 17-year-old was arrested the same day as Probst’s death on suspicion of hit-and-run. He was later charged with murder because of the video, although the date the charges were set was unclear.
