The Washington Post - - RELIGION - — Michael Brice-Sad­dler

A man was ar­rested Fri­day in con­nec­tion with the hit-and-run death of a cy­clist last month, D.C. po­lice said.

Po­lice said Thomas Hen­dricks Hol­low­ell, 64, of Ar­ling­ton was ped­al­ing east on Sept. 24 in the 1200 block of Con­sti­tu­tion Av­enue NW when struck. The mo­torist ran through a red light and drove off, po­lice said. Phillip Peo­ples, 20, of Suit­land, Md., was charged with sec­ond-de­gree mur­der, po­lice said.

Hol­low­ell was hit near the Smith­so­nian Na­tional Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral His­tory, where he worked. In a state­ment re­leased Fri­day, the mu­seum said staff mem­bers con­tin­ued to mourn Hol­low­ell, who “was a val­ued mem­ber of our com­mu­nity.”
