UPDATE @ 2:55 p.m.
Police in Greenville have tracked down a male suspected of driving a pickup truck off Washington Avenue this morning, striking a bicyclist then leaving the scene of the crash.
The bicyclist was not seriously injured, but the driver, 24-year-old Ethan Louk, is facing multiple charges in the hit/skip incident, including felonious assault.
Our crew was there when Louk was taken into custody on North Broadway Street.
Greenville officer Darrin Fox said it appears the suspect targeted the victim and attempted to harm him intentionally.
Police said the suspect has threatened the victim before over some sort of property disagreement.
The 500 block of Washington Avenue is closed as Greenville police investigate an incident in which a truck traveled off the street and hit a bicyclist on the sidewalk.
The road was expected to reopen by early afternoon.

— Heavy rains made for tough driving conditions Saturday, but high water remains a concern through the weekend.
Lower lying and more rural roads are at a greater risk of flooding, such as Ohio 68 in Beavercreek, and Ohio 725, which is closed until further notice between Peniwit and Lower Bellbrook roads.
“We just want motorists to take a little extra time in planning where they want to go,” Sgt. Rod Murphy of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Anyone planning to head out this morning should be aware of potential flooding that could block your way.
If you see standing water in the roadway, turn around, even if the water appears shallow.
“It’s not worth the risk. It’s better to just safely turn around and find another way,” Murphy said.
On wet roadways another concern is hydroplaning, when tires lose their grip on the pavement. Motorists in that situation are advised to “just let off the gas, slow down, and try to get to a safe area,” Murphy said.
Late Saturday and early Sunday there were reports of flooding throughout the Miami Valley.
6:42 a.m.: Road was shut down from South and Oxford to Franklin Trenton and Hobart in Franklin
5:23 a.m.: High water reported at Lower Valley Pike in Springfield
3:27 a.m.: High water reported at Wilson Road between Fenner Road and OH-55.
3:05 a.m.: South Valley at US-35 is shut-down due to high water.
1:45 a.m.: April Lane at New Germany Trebien Road and Beavery Valley Road closed.
12:00 a.m.: Upper Bellbrook Road reported having high water.
12:00 a.m.: High water on US-68 and North at Sutton Road caused a vehicle slide off and a police cruiser was damaged.
11:30 p.m.: Hebble Creek was out of its banks in Fairborn in Greene County
