Clearwater police have made an arrest in a hit-and-run accident that knocked a young couple riding a tandem bicycle 50 feet, leaving one dead and the other in a coma.  Christopher Patrick Weed came forward Tuesday, telling police he blacked out on his way home from work and has no idea how the windshield of his truck got knocked out, according to the Tampa Bay Times.  Police charged him with two felony counts of leaving the crash scene.
