A Tennessee school administrator was arrested after he allegedly struck a bicyclist and fled the scene Saturday morning — an incident that was caught on video.
Tyler Noe and his friend Greg Goodman were riding their bikes down Natchez Trace Parkway in Williamson County about 11 a.m. when a black SUV rammed into Noe from behind, WKRN reported.
Goodman’s helmet GoPro camera captured the crash. He posted the video on his Facebook page shortly after the incident, which has garnered thousands of reactions and comments as of Monday.
Noe was seen quickly getting up and walking off the road. He was treated in the hospital for non-life threatening injuries and is recovering from cuts and bruises on his body, according to WKRN.

"Marshall Neely served as dean of students at University School of Nashville before transitioning to a part-time role this summer. He also is parent of two alumni. As of today, USN has placed Mr. Neely on leave of absence while we investigate the circumstances," the statement read.
