Alleged hit-and-run drunk driver appears in court

The Valders man mentioned in the last blog post and accused of driving while intoxicated, striking a Kiel bicyclist, and then fleeing the scene appeared in court yesterday. Police reports give new details about what happened during the accident.

The driver had a blood-alcohol level of 0.12 when he struck the cyclist. He faces one count of homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and hit-and-run resulting in death. The criminal complaint says 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 say that the Valders man called them around 2 a.m.  to say he had hit a deer. Inspection of his vehicle was consistent in the damages that would be expected when hitting a cyclist. The driver is free on bond and will return to court April 28 for a preliminary hearing.
