Springs police arrest suspect in deadly hit and run

Colorado Springs police have made an arrest in a deadly hit and run crash that left a 19-year-old Fort Carson solder dead Memorial Day weekend.

Investigators say a tip led them to the suspect -- Michael Wesley Coyner -- yesterday afternoon.

Conyer is accused of driving a car that fled the scene of the crash on May 27th.

The incident happened near Rangewood and Randall. Police say a car turned in front of the victim, Christopher Wheeler, as he was riding on a motorcycle. Wheeler died shortly after the crash from his injuries. Two other motorcyclists were also injured, but survived.

Conyer is charged with hit and run and several other traffic charges.
