, the cyclist that killed a pedestrian last March in San Francisco
while attempting to obtain Strava glory
has pleaded guilty to felony vehicular manslaughter
becoming the first bicyclist convicted of manslaughter in the United States.
Bucchere, discussed previously on the Blue
, will not serve any jail or prison time but was given three years probation and 1,000 hours of community service. The family of the man he killed, Sutchi Hui, is filing a civil suit against Bucchere.
The manslaughter conviction, instead of the lesser misdemeanor that Randolph Ang
, another cyclist that struck and killed a pedestrian in San Francisco, received was fueled by the lack of remorse
from Bucchere following the accident where, from his hospital bed, he boasted of his wreck and mourned the loss of his helmet: In closing, I want to dedicate this story to my late helmet. She died in heroic fashion today as my head slammed into the tarmac... The moral of this little story is: WYFH.
