CALEDONIA, Wis. (AP) — A Racine man is charged with causing the death of a bicyclist who was struck last week in southeastern Wisconsin.
Twenty-seven-year-old Tyler Martinez was charged Monday with felony hit-and-run resulting in death. Martinez remains in jail with signature bond set at $50,000.
The Journal Times reports the victim is identified as 39-year-old Michael Fuchsgruber. Fuchsgruber was riding his bicycle on Douglas Avenue in Caledonia while his 15-year-old son rode on the sidewalk alongside him when the victim was struck Friday night. He died at a Racine hospital.
According to the complaint, Martinez called his father after he hit something Friday night. His father then called 911 to report the crash.
