SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A judge has ordered a bicyclist who fatally struck a 71-year-old man in a San Francisco crosswalk to stand trial on manslaughter charges.
Superior Court Judge Andrew Cheng made is ruling on Thursday against Chris Bucchere who has pleaded not guilty.
The 36-year-old Bucchere is accused of running a red light on his bicycle and hitting Sutchi Hui as Hui and his wife crossed the street at an intersection in the Castro District on March 29.
Hui died a few days later of blunt force trauma injuries from the collision.
Prosecutors say that Bucchere ran several stop signs and was trying to beat a personal speed record on a ride that began in the Marin Headlands.
Bucchere is due back in court for arraignment on March 21.
