Charges rendered against driver

Cyclist’s death. Ten years in prison. Last month, the man who drove into a pack of 15 cyclists was charged with reckless homicide, which brings a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a mandatory five-year revocation of his driver’s licensae. After months of working with Charleston attorney Peter Wilborn of mybikelaw, a verdict was finally reached. Peter works in tandem with Charlotte attorney and CABA member Ann Groninger. He was guest speaker at the CABA annual picnic a few years ago.

The victim died after months in a coma. He was 38 years old. The group ride was a regular Friday night social that departed from Outspokin’ Bicycles in Augusta. at 6:40 p.m. NOTE: This news item borrowed in part from the League of American Bicyclists website.

    My mother told me about this. Her neighbor who lives down the street was in the pack and has a broken arm. The man who was killed, was in a coma from the accident and finally died without ever regaining consciousness. He was a doctor at Eisenhower Hospital. The driver had a logistics job.
