A 22-year-old Rochester, New York, man is facing multiple charges in connection to a fatal accident earlier this month. According to an article published by ABC 13 News, the crash happened on the afternoon of Aug. 5 along Route 250 in Penfield, New York.
The man charged in connection with the accident was released from prison just two weeks prior to the crash. He had been serving time for two felony counts of DWI and burglary. He was released on the condition that he would not drive until he received his license and had a vehicle ignition interlock system installed on his vehicle.
However, he was speeding and riding a motorcycle when he struck a young woman riding a bicycle along the road. The victim was thrown to the asphalt by the force of the Rochester Bicycle Accident, where she was then hit and killed by another vehicle driven by an intoxicated woman.
The motorcyclist was charged with manslaughter along with numerous violations of his release from prison, including not having the ignition interlock system or a valid driver’s license for a car or motorcycle.
The young woman who was driving the car that hit the downed biker was also charged with DWI, manslaughter, and not having a valid driver’s license.
The Rochester Auto Accident Lawyers with William Mattar Law Offices hope the pending charges will help bring some closure to the family of the woman killed in the accident.
