Aiexpress – A bicyclist killed in a hit-and-run in Northland last Sunday, near North Oak, has been identified.
The man has been named Rick Snow, who is 31 years old.
Based on the investigations, Snow was driving south on North Oak in the second lane of traffic when she was bit by a silver Ford F-150 that was also going south.
When the Ford hit the bicycle, it didn’t stop and drove away. Snow was thrown off the bike and was declared dead at the scene.
The driver of the Ford, Brian Zug, was charged with DWI causing death and leaving the scene of an accident that killed someone.
Some people who saw what happened said they were also going south on North Oak and slowed down to let Zug merge into her lane so he wouldn’t hit the bike. But Zug never slowed down or moved over.
Zug kept going, but he finally stopped in the parking lot of a strip mall. It was while watching the car that the witness called the cops.
Court records show that the pickup truck driver left the scene of the crime and wasn’t caught until police caught up with him near 79th Street and North Oak.
In his statement, Zug said that he had been drinking all day at the Chiefs game and then went to a bar in Northland with his buddy and had more drinks.
Zug also said he wasn’t aware he hit and killed Snow because he was so drunk, according to the documents. He thought he was in a crash with another car as he drove away from the scene of the accident before his truck broke down.
On January 23, at 9 a.m., he is due in court.
