People push DA for consequence in bicyclists death

The district attorney in Iowa County has been urged to consider whether there should be criminal charges in the death of a bicyclist lst year.

The Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin has urged the district attorney to consider filing the charges against a teenage driver that struck a 62-year-old bicyclist and killed him.

The accident occurred on July 11, 2009 when the bicyclist was hit by the truck as the truck attempted a left turn in front of him. The report states that the driver of the car did not yield to oncoming traffic, but no citation was given. In Wisconsin, a bicycle is not seen as a legal vehicle so they are not treated with the same.
