A driver allegedly hit a cyclist on Natchez Trace Parkway Saturday afternoon then left the scene. The driver has since been arrested.

This video was posted by Greg Goodman, who said he was riding with Tyler Noe around 11 a.m. Saturday when a vehicle intentionally hit Noe. Noe was taken to the hospital but was not seriously injured, Goodman said. He also said the same car was seen threatening or almost hitting cyclists last week.

The National Park Service has since arrested 58-year-old Marshall Grant Neely III, a Dean of Students at University School of Nashville, for the alleged hit-and-run.

Neely, according to the Williamson County Sheriff’s Department, is charged with reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to immediately notify of an accident, and failure to render aid.

In the video, a truck can be seen giving Noe and the other bikers plenty of space. Signs posted along the route say share the road and according to guidelines by the National Park Service, drivers must share the road with cyclists. Cyclists are also supposed to ride in a single file.

Neely is out of jail on bond. His court date has been scheduled for July 20.

The University School of Nashville has since put Neely on a leave of absence.
