According to the charging document, a witness was able to observe Ali's license plate as he sped away from the scene of the nighttime accident with his lights off.
Here's the entire charging document, which outlines the evidence authorities have against Ali:
The driver involved in Minneapolis's other car-on-bicycle hit-and-run fatality this year wasn't charged with criminal vehicular homicide. In that case, investigators determined 28-year-old cyclist Elyse Stern tried to cross a street in front of 27-year-old Juan Ricardo Hernandez-Campoceco while he had a green light. Hernandez-Campoceco was allegedly "extremely intoxicated" at the time of the accident.
