A man charged with knocking four down cyclists could face a more serious charge after one of the riders died recently.
Kenyatta Benjamin of Hatton, was charged with dangerous driving after he allegedly knocked down Andre Simon, Sean Weathered, Ghere Coates and Tiziano Rosignoli, on May 8.
All four men received treatment, but while the other three were later discharged from the hospital, the Mother’s Day incident landed Simon in the ICU for quite some time.
He experienced head trauma and internal bleeding as a result of the incident.
In early July Simon was transported to a medical facility in Texas for further treatment and although he was said to be improving he passed away on June 8 leaving the fate of Benjamin up in the air.
The police say that investigations will continue into the matter and a pathology report will determine the way forward.
If the report indicates that Simon died as a result of the accident, the accused will be charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
