A Lake View, Iowa man has been charged with unsafe passing for a fatal collision between his car and a bicyclist in northwest Iowa.
30 year old Eric Meyer is also charged with failure to wear a safety belt and have proof of insurance.
The charge of unsafe passing carries an enhanced penalty, if he’s convicted, because the accident resulted in a death.
The Iowa State Patrol says 47-year-old Shawn Gosch was riding a bicycle with 49-year-old Jeffrey Gray, both of Onawa, on June 20th.
The patrol says Meyer’s car struck Gosch’s bicycle, which then crashed into Gray’s.
Gosch died from his injuries, Gray was also injured.
