Teen Guilty of Killing Cyclist

Yet another case of "Uh... I didn't see him." Please everyone - remember to BE AWARE. Cyclists - ride with a mirror and be ready to BAIL if you see some horny teen "on her way to pick up her boyfriend." She just might kill you dead.

"Maj Rhys-Evans was knocked off his Kinetic-One bike and catapulted over the roof of Hart's Ford Ka, ending up in the fast lane of the dual carriageway. He survived the initial impact – a fellow competitor described hearing him screaming and crying – but his injuries proved fatal and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hart, of Little Paxton, near St Neots, Cambridgeshire, admitted causing death by careless driving but the Crown Prosecution Service decided she should be tried for the more serious offence of dangerous driving.

On the day of the accident, visibility was good and the weather was dry. Hart, who was on her way to pick up her boyfriend, passed within a foot of another competitor in the race before hitting 37-year-old Maj Rhys-Evans. She told paramedics "he came out of nowhere", according to WalesOnline.

Maj Rhys-Evans, originally of Llandovery, Dyfed, Wales, was based at Rheindahlen military base in Germany and had flown back to the UK to compete with the Army Cycling Union.

The married father-of-two commanded 12 Military Intelligence Company, part of 1 Military Intelligence Battalion. He joined the Army aged 25 in 1996, and served with the Royal Artillery before transferring to intelligence."
