The 18-year old driver was from West Virginia. How does that change things Pennsyltucky-wise?
I have to agree with the people who said the bike was basically incidental. The driver didn't see a cyclist on the road and aim for him; he left a parking lot at "a high rate of speed" and didn't care who or what he hit- could have been someone on a bike, could have been a baby carriage, could have been a pedestrian. Should he have stopped rather than dragging the bike through the streets? Or checked to see if the kid on the bike had been hit? Yes, of course, but he was clearly ****ed off and not in a fit state to be driving period.
