A 29-year-old Seattle man remains jailed in connection with the death of a bicyclist who was killed Saturday night in the Ravenna neighborhood.
A King County District Court judge found probable cause Monday to hold a 29-year-old Seattle man on investigation of vehicular homicide for allegedly hitting and killing a bicyclist Saturday night in Seattle’s Ravenna neighborhood.
Lucas McQuinn is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, according to King County prosecutors and jail records. His next court appearance is Wednesday.
Killed was Andres Hulslander, 45, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. He suffered numerous fractures and cuts to his head, neck, torso and extremities, death investigators said.
Around 11 p.m. Saturday, McQuinn was driving a red Subaru east on Northeast 65th Street at a high rate of speed when he struck a bicyclist from behind near the intersection with 15th Avenue Northeast, according to Seattle police.

Medics performed CPR on the bicyclist but he later died at the hospital, says the statement of probable cause outlining the police case against McQuinn, who was identified as the driver by several witnesses.
Police say McQuinn showed obvious signs of impairment and told an officer he had been drinking at The Atlantic Crossing Pub, about five blocks from the crash scene, the statement says. According to police, McQuinn claimed to have had four beers and taken Adderall, a drug he takes daily for attention-deficit disorder.
When contacted by officers, McQuinn had glass shards on his pants and a cut to his nose, presumably from his shattered windshield, the statement says. His breath smelled of alcohol, his speech was slurred, and his eyes were bloodshot and watery, according to the statement.
McQuinn struggled to complete field-sobriety tests and declined a portable breath test, the statement says. He was arrested at the scene.
Public records show Hulslander, who appeared to be from Brooklyn, N.Y., had lived in the Seattle area since the early 1990s. The records indicate he moved from North Seattle to Lake Forest Park this year.
A woman who answered a call placed to a phone number associated with Hulslander declined to speak with a reporter Monday.
