Well at least it didn’t happen in Portland. With the understaffed PPB doubtful they would have been arrested. Unfortunately good chance DA Mike “weak on crime” Schmidt won’t press charges. Be safe out there. https://www.koin.com/news/crashes/bicyclist-killed-in-hit-run-driver-arrested-deputies/
According to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, 56 year old Robert Lee Wilson has been charged with:
• DUII (A Misdemeanor)
• RECKLESS DRIVING (A Misdemeanor)
• FAIL PERF DOD INJ (C Felony)
• VEHICL ASSLT PED (A Misdemeanor)
• NEGL HOMICIDE (B Felony)
• MANSLAUGHTER II (B Felony)
How in the world is VEHCL ASSLT PED a misdemeanor? Also, why wasn’t he charged for having an unlicensed (and probably uninsured) car?
I see a temp sticker in the rear window. So that might explain not charging for a missing plate.
