Regarding bike accident last summer (click here for details), Greene county DA charged the driver with the 3ft rule violation/ a misdemeanor and aggravated assault charge/a felony. These are just charges and the trial is sometime in May for a jury to decide. As cyclists we can hope the DA will be aggressive in pursuing this irresponsibility!
Jay, I will share this with some of the founders of Bike Walk Tennessee. I appreciate being kept in the loop on this. Please let me know if there is anything you can think of that we can do to help. It pleases me that the Greene County DA went after the aggravated assault charge in addition to the 3 ft rule violation. At the very least, we can compose an email to Mr. Bell letting him know that we have been updated on the charges (without mentioning names, of course) and will be watching for positive results!
Best of luck, Jonell Johnson
