DUBLIN (BCN)--A San Ramon man has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run  that killed a bicyclist in Dublin on Tuesday.
Spencer Freeman Smith was arrested Thursday after Dublin police  identified him as the owner of a recently purchased black 2012 Mercedes-Benz  CLS550 connected with the fatal crash on Dougherty and Fall Creek roads,  according to Lt. Herb Walters.
The vehicle had suffered extensive windshield and front-end damage  and was missing parts that were recovered at the scene of the crash. It has  been taken into custody for further examination, Walters said.
Smith, an employment attorney with offices in San Francisco, is  suspected of fleeing the scene after striking 57-year-old Bo Hu, who was  riding or walking his bicycle north on Dougherty Road near the shoulder at  the time of the crash around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Hu, who according to the Alameda County coroner's bureau was  visiting the area from abroad, was pronounced dead at the scene.
