Subject: One more slap on the wrist/face
I wonder if the killers driving privileges were revoked? I doubt it.
I rode Bartlett today, almost got clipped twice, and had one asshole honk at me, when I was way to the right of the little fog line I had, and I have the right to be left of the line. No wonder everyone here carries a gun.
From the article:
A driver who struck and killed a bicyclist with his car last June in Northfield Township was sentenced today to two years of probation.
Joshua Hidey, 23, of Whitmore Lake, who pleaded no contest to negligent homicide, was sentenced by Washtenaw County Circuit Judge David Swartz.
. . . On June 5, Hidey was driving the second of two cars passing a car on Seven Mile Road at about 10:50 p.m. The first car completed the pass, but Hidey’s Pontiac Grand Prix did not and struck 53-year-old Duane West’s bicycle head-on, police said. West, of Ann Arbor, died at the scene.
. . . A Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputy testified during a preliminary hearing that Hidey made an improper pass.
“The fact of the matter is the defendant was committing a traffic violation when this death occurred,” Collins said.
Keep the rubber side down out there, folks.by
