Chicago Police made an arrest in a hit and run accident that critically injured a bicyclist earlier this month.

Jason Popko is charged with driving a stolen semi and leaving the scene of an accident with injury.

Police say Popko was driving this stolen semi when he hit a man on a bicycle, near 36th and Ashland, on October 7th.

Nearby surveillance cameras caught these images of the truck which helped lead investigators to Popko.

He is scheduled to appear in bond court later today.
