A retired D.C. police officer is due in court Thursday on assault and other charges stemming from a videotaped collision last year between the man's truck and a bicyclist.
A D.C. vehicle owner who was wanted in connection with a videotaped collision involving a cyclist in August turned himself in Friday after learning this week there was a bench warrant for his arrest.
A bicyclist who was struck by a motorist in the District last year in a highly publicized crash said efforts to prosecute the driver have been stymied because the man has not shown up for court and has not been arrested on the outstanding bench warrant issued in the case.
Mr. Wilder, who suffered injuries to his leg and hip in the crash, said officials told him shortly after the incident that they did not plan to pursue assault charges against the driver of the truck.
"It does seem that the fact a driver is being prosecuted for assault is a message for drivers," said Mr. Wilder, who continues to commute daily by bicycle to his job in the District.
