SHELTON, Conn. (AP) - A man accused of being the driver in a hit-and-run accident that killed a bicyclist in Shelton in December has been charged with negligent homicide and evading responsibility.

Shelton police say 36-year-old Ryder Kingsley of New Haven turned himself in on Friday after a warrant for his arrest was issued. He was held on $100,000 bail pending arraignment later in the day in Derby Superior Court.

Authorities say Kingsley’s vehicle struck 55-year-old Brian Climis of Ansonia on Dec. 23. Climis died at a hospital the next day on Christmas Eve.

It’s not clear if Kingsley has a lawyer who could respond to the charges.

Climis told the Connecticut Post several years ago that he routinely rode his bicycle 14 miles from his home to his job in Shelton.
