    A bicyclist who struck and killed a 71-year-old pedestrian in San Francisco has been convicted of felony manslaughter, the first conviction of its kind for a cyclist in the U.S.

    Chris Bucchere, 37, was biking through a busy intersection when he struck and killed Sutchi Hui, who was crossing the street with his wife in down downtown San Francisco. .........

    Bucchere agreed to a plea deal with the prosecutors where he will serve 1,000 hours of community service and three years of probation for the crime, according to the prosecutor's office.

    Gascon said that Hui's family did not want jail time for Bucchere. Hui's family has filed a civil suit against Bucchere. .......more....

    I guess a bike is a vehicle too. Though I never thought of this happening.

    Interesting that the family doesn't want jail time for him because they have a civil suit against him.

    The article didn't say they didn't want jail time for him because they have a civil suit against him. On more than a few occasions I've gone through the metal detectors and unpacked my steno machine in a jail cell to take the deposition of a convicted prisoner who was now being deposed in a civil suit.
