Extreme Dislike of Bicycle Riders Lead to Homicide?

Patrick Ward, a 69-year-old Lyons citizen, was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide, careless driving resulting in death, and DUI. The man has reportedly made complaints regarding the bicyclist community in his town in 2010 which led the authorities to believe that he intentionally hit Van Duym with the SUV he was driving while the victim was bicycling on Main Street in Lyons.

According to the minutes recorded for the Lyons Board of Trustees session last March 1, 2010, Ward says:

“These people don’t belong in Lyons. They certainly don’t belong in the foothills around Lyons.”
