The driver accused of hitting a cyclist on Natchez Trace and then fleeing the scene will plead guilty, according to court documents. 

The wreck happened on July 8 when the bicyclist was hit and injured in Williamson County by the driver of a black Volvo, who was later identified as Marshall Neely, III. 

The crash was captured on a helmet-mounted camera worn by the bicyclist’s cycling partner and later went viral. 

A federal grand jury later indicted him on charges of reckless aggravated assault, lying to a federal agent, and obstruction of justice.

A change of plea hearing has been set for May 21.
