Testimony continued Wednesday in the Pablo Cruz trial.

He is accused of leading police on a chase, after they say he hit and killed a bicyclist with his truck.

Police say Cruz was drunk when he led them on a 20-minute chase, from Albany to Rotterdam, back in November 2012.

He's accused of hitting Paul Merges Jr., 45, who was riding his bicycle.

Merges got tangled in a rack on Cruz’s truck and prosecutors say Cruz kept driving.
