Luc Vu has been arrested in relation to the death of Independent wrestler Matt Travis. Vu, 48, is being charged with reckless driving, failure to yield to a bicyclist, failure to obey a traffic device, drive left of pavement marking and failure to exercise due care.
Travis, 25, was on a bicycle at East 125th Street and First Avenue in New York on Nov. 9 when he was struck by a dump truck reportedly driven by Vu around 3 a.m. ET.
According to MSN, investigators determined a Kenworth dump truck traveling southbound on First Avenue made an illegal left turn onto East 125th Street attempting to enter the Willis Avenue Bridge and struck Travis as he traveled southbound on a bike path coming off the bridge. It is unclear if Vu knew he had hit Travis, who was returning from wrestling training.
Travis was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead upon arrival.
Travis wrestled for House of Glory, CZW, GCW, and other Independent promotions. HOG dedicated its No Limit event on Nov. 16 to Travis. The Nov. 20 tag team bout pitting Santana & Ortiz against Private Party on AEW Dynamite was also dedicated to Travis.
