The Horrific Incident
On the morning of August 14, 2023, a deeply unfortunate incident occurred when Andreas Probst tragically lost his life in a devastating cycling accident.
The incident unfolded as a Hyundai Elantra car struck him from behind, resulting in the heartbreaking passing of the elderly gentleman right at the scene.
Prompted by an alert from her father’s Apple Watch indicating his fall, Taylor Probst, Andreas’ daughter, alongside her mother, Crystal Probst, rushed to the crash site, which happened to be just 3 miles from their residence.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department, a 2016 Hyundai Elantra, driven by a minor, was speeding and collided with the back of Andreas’ bicycle before fleeing the scene.
The juvenile driver and the passenger were subsequently apprehended and taken to the Juvenile Detention Center; however, their identities were kept secret for a while due to their age.
Eventually, the names were released, and people got to learn that the one who was driving the car that hit Andreas was Jesus Ayala (17 at that time), and the one who was cheering him sitting in the passenger seat was Jzamir Keys (16).
Police Arrested Ayala and Keys
According to reliable sources, Jesus Ayala, the driver responsible for intentionally striking Andreas Probst, disturbingly stated on camera that he expected minimal consequences once in custody. When officers were processing Ayala for an existing warrant and obstructing a peace officer charge, they hadn’t initially informed him about the hit-and-run incident.
However, they suspected he had concealed crucial information, prompting them to seize his phone. Upon inspecting Ayala’s mobile device, the police discovered a deeply disturbing video. The footage showed the tragic moment when Andy Probst, 64, was fatally struck, and it also contained a brief clip depicting another cyclist being hit by a Kia Soul.
Ayala had recorded this video, indicating his complicity as a passenger. The audio captured the honking of a car horn and a voice urging him to “bump him” repeatedly.
A cyclist wearing an orange shirt, positioned on the far right side of the street, was visible. Both suspects could be heard laughing, accompanied by the revving of the engine.
Fortunately, the other cyclist, a 72-year-old man, survived this appalling incident. In further investigations, homicide detectives received critical information regarding Jzamir Keys, 16, identified as the passenger in the crash that claimed Probst’s life. It was revealed that Keys had been involved in a fight on September 14, with video evidence matching the description.
His white tennis shoes in the fight video aligned with those in the August 14 crime spree. Keys had recorded the video of the deliberate and tragic incident where Probst lost his life on August 14. This collision was a grim culmination of an alleged crime spree involving a series of car thefts and hit-and-runs.
The video showcased the teens apparently striking another car during their reckless activities. The stolen vehicle used in the fatal attack on Probst was discovered abandoned near Craig Road and Jones Boulevard, mere minutes from the crash site.
Appearance in Court
After their apprehension, Ayala and Keys were taken into custody and officially booked into the Clark County Detention Center on September 21, 2023. During their court appearance, Ayala displayed a complete lack of remorse, strongly suggesting an alarming absence of shame for his actions.
Outside the detention center, Oyala’s mother was seen expressing her bewilderment over her son’s actions. She stated that she didn’t understand why her son had committed such a heinous act and added that she wasn’t sure if God could forgive her son for what he had done.
As per official records, Jesus, who was behind the wheel during the tragic incident, is facing a8 charges. These charges include murder, battery with the use of a deadly weapon, attempted murder, leaving the scene of an accident, and multiple larceny charges.
