Authorities were seeking a pickup truck due to reports that it was driving erratically minutes before it struck a group of bicyclists on a street in western Michigan Cheap San Diego Padres Jersey , killing five, a local prosecutor said.
Four other bicyclists suffered serious injuries in the crash early Tuesday evening in Cooper Township and were being treated at area hospitals, Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeffrey Getting said during a news conference Tuesday night.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims," Getting said. "I can't even begin to imagine what they're going through."
The driver of the pickup, described as a 50-year-old western Michigan man Cheap San Francisco Giants Jersey , fled from the wrecked vehicle, and police caught him a short time later. He remains in custody. No charges have yet been filed, but they could come by Thursday, Getting said.
Authorities began receiving calls about a blue pickup truck about 30 minutes before the crash, he said.
Concerns were "about the manner in which that vehicle was being driven Cheap Seattle Mariners Jersey ," Getting added, without addressing possible reasons for the erratic driving.
Several agencies were searching for the pickup when the first report of the bicyclists getting hit came in just after 6:30 p.m., he said. No officers were actively pursuing the truck at the time it crashed.
The bicyclists had been riding as a group. Their names and ages were not immediately released because family members were still being notified. The group included men and women but no children, as an official had said previously.
Early information is that they were northbound and on the right shoulder of the road when they were struck from behind, Getting said.
Markus Eberhard was leaving a nearby park after fishing and said he nearly was hit by the pickup. He was unable to warn the bicyclists.
"I saw a bunch of bikes hit the front of his truck and a couple of them flew Cheap St. Louis Cardinals Jersey ," Eberhard told WOOD-TV.
Paramedics and fire crews rushed to the scene, Getting said.
Few other details were released Tuesday night.
"There's very little I can and will tell you about exactly how this incident happened," Getting said.
He declined to answer several questions about the suspect and said the man's name would not be released until his office has had an opportunity to make a determination about charges.
Cooper Township is south of Grand Rapids and just miles from Kalamazoo. The area still is dealing with the random fatal shootings of six people and wounding of two others in February. Jason Dalton, 45, had been picking up riders for Uber at the time of the shootings. He is charged with murder and attempted murder. His attorney told a judge Monday that Dalton is expected to plead insanity in his defense.
As a personal trainer Cheap Tampa Bay Rays Jersey , I get asked this question at least once a day, "Which the best exercises to get firm, flat and toned abdominals?" It's not an easy question to address, since there are hundreds of abdominal exercises.
Let's face it. Our eyes gravitate towards a flat and well toned abdominal region. We all want that elusive flat, firm and enviable look of 'washboard abs'. The muscles of your abdominal region Cheap Texas Rangers Jersey , and indeed the midsection aren't isolated; they weave through your torso like a web of high-tensile steel, and it's critical to train them the right way.
So how do you get results fast? A recent study by the American Council on Exercise has the answer. Let's discover the 3 most effective exercises to get flat abdominals, the correct way to breathe during abdominal exercises and tips and tricks to get results faster. I have integrated these exercises to help thousands of clients get results.

A California study conducted by the American Council on Exercise has determined that the classic sit-up is not the best answer for stronger, flatter abdominals. The conclusions were intriguing Cheap Toronto Blue Jays Jersey , to say the least. The traditional sit-up was among the least effective abdominal muscle exercises.
Sit-ups (in which you raise your trunk up from the floor with your knees straight or bent) involve the hip muscles disproportionately relative to the abdominals. This means the hip muscles work more and the abdominal muscles work less i.e they are not getting trained in the right manner. In addition, there is an unnecessary (and potentially harmful) strain on the lower back. The sit-up is not only ineffective, but potentially harmful.
There's more, and it's equally surprising. The study indicated that several gadgets for the abdominals were either ineffective or marginally more effective than a regular abdominal crunch, which doesn't cost you anything Cheap Washington Nationals Jersey , other than the time required to learn the right technique.
Now for the big news. The top three abdominal muscle exercises were:
The Bicycle maneuver.
The Captains Chair.
Crunch on an exercise ball.
For best results.
Start with 2-3 sets of each exercise, 8-10 repetitions. Increase by 8-10 repetitions each week till you work your way up to a set of 40 repetitions in each set. 2 sets of 35-40 repetitions a day for the abdominals is ideal, and you do not need to train more than that.
Breathing during abdominal muscle exercises.
With all abdominal muscle exercises, exhale as you contract exert come up crunch your abdominals; inhale as you relax lower return to the starting position.
Points to remember.
