I don't think demonizing cyclists is the proper choice.

This will be a tough case to defend. But, the only defense will be to try to minimize the "Rolling Coal", and instead claim that he was just accelerating to pass. And, the difficulty for a young driver to pass a large group of cyclists caused the accident.

Was there a reason why the group that were hit weren't seen?

A lot of what I'm reading is from the viewpoint of the cyclists, but there may well be a different viewpoint of the driver.
