Hit-and-run drunk driver appears in court

The case of the bicyclist-vehicle accident mentioned in the last blog post that resulted in the cyclist’s death has reached local courts. The Valders man accused of driving drunk, striking the Kiel cyclist, and fleeing the scene, faces one count of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and hit-and-run resulting in death. The complaint filed by the prosecution states that the cyclist “was a very experienced rider and had a red flashing light to the rear of the vehicle” and it says he was “wearing light-colored pants and a green reflective vest.”

Police report that the driver called them around 2 a.m. to say he thought he had hit a deer but wasn’t sure. Inspection of the damage to his vehicle found it to be consistent with a cyclist-vehicle collision, not a deer collision. The driver is currently free on bond but will return to court April 28 for a preliminary hearing.
