Police believe they found the man responsible for the hit-and-run death of a Sunnyside cyclist lying drunk in the street less than two miles from the accident.

Alex Batista, 25, was found by cops lying beside his banged up black Infiniti after he struck a building at approximately 11 p.m. Wednesday night, authorities said.

The hit-and-run occurred before 10 p.m. on Greenpoint Avenue when Roger Hernandez was struck from behind as he rode his bicycle. Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Batista was charged with vehicle manslaughter, DWI, leaving the scene of an accident and unlawful possession of marijuana.
