(AP) -
Authorities say a vehicle slammed into a group of at least eight bicyclists in western Michigan, leaving an unknown number of people dead and others injured.
   Kalamazoo County Undersheriff Paul Matyas tells WZZM-TV and WOOD-TV it is unclear how many people have been killed in the early Tuesday evening crash near a park in Cooper Township.
   Matyas says a driver struck the bicyclists and fled on foot but has since been arrested.
   He tells the television stations some of the people struck are children.
   The Associated Press left a message Tuesday seeking comment from Matyas.
   Cooper Township is south of Grand Rapids.
   No further details were immediately available.
