Cyclist killed by alleged DUI hit-and-run

by CyclingTips

A cyclist was killed while riding near Boulder, Colorado after a fatal hit-and-run incident with a vehicle. The suspect in the case, already on probation for driving while impaired, also had two other prior alcohol-related arrests, one for DUI and one for public intoxication. A 30-pack of beer was found in the vehicle with only five cans unopened.

William Davis, 35, was riding in the bicycle lane when Callie Kuhasz, 24, driving a 2015 Dodge Durango, allegedly collided with Davis.

Kuhasz left the scene but a witness saw Kuhasz, “hysterically laughing.” She then got out to inspect the damage and continued to laugh. Officers detected alcohol on her breath and noticed the beer in the vehicle. Kuhasz refused to cooperate with a blood test.

“Horrifying. I’ve just never felt a feeling like that in my heart before and I just kind of want it to go away,” Erin Carson, owner of Rally Sport, the cycling team Davis rode for, told Fox31 Denver.

A judge set bond at $200,000 on Monday which drew audible condemnation from friends and family who filled the courtroom.
