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.
The lingering prosecution thus far underscores the uphill battle cyclists face as they push for safer roadways, Mr. Wilder said.
"We're nine months since it happened, and he's driving and free. It seems to me there should be repercussions for cursing and running into someone on the road," Evan Wilder said Wednesday after testifying before a D.C. Council committee on pedestrian and bike safety.
