Well, if he faces any charges, I almost guarantee they won’t include the “reasonable and prudent reduced speed” portion of the four-foot passing statute…

^ pretty good sight lines. I wonder how fast the car was traveling, and if the phone was in use.

The comments are pretty much what I would expect.

They showed it on the news and the car was wrapped around a tree/utility pole and there wasn’t much left of it. I don’t know the speed limit on that road, but it looked awful.

There are portions where the limit is 55 (I saw a “55″ sign further down the road) and 25 in ‘town’

Based on a quick look at Google Street View, I would say that 55 mph seems really high for a speed limit on that road. It’s pretty narrow and there’s really no need to go that fast there.

Of course in spite of this I’m still pretty sure the driver was speeding and certainly not using a “reasonable and prudent reduced speed” based on the images of the aftermath shown on the news.

I haven’t looked at the SV, but 55 is pretty standard for a country highway in this state.

From WPXI Traffic Twitter: Bicycle Accident in Homewood along N Lang Ave at Kedron St.
Anyone know anything?

Jon, That’s all I heard too. But I heard it on the news during the traffic segment. Accident involving a bicycle on North Lang at K(…) in Homewood. Didn’t catch the cross street. Glad you did. I heard this as I was leaving the house, probably just before 8 a.m.
