BOERNE, Texas -

The 69-year-old Boerne man hit and killed Thursday night while riding his bike on the access road of Interstate 10 in Kendall County has been identified.

Around 7:15 p.m., Dr. Larry Becker was struck by an unknown vehicle that fled the scene in the 39000 block of west-bound Interstate 10, a relative confirmed.

A Department of Public Safety official said the impact of the crash threw Becker into a ditch and left his bike, a carbon fiber racing-style bicycle, in pieces.

Officers at the scene said Becker had died from his injuries.

There were no witnesses to the hit-and-run, but officers are hoping a video surveillance camera in the area may hold some clues.
