For the third time in a month, a bicyclist in the Quad Cities has been killed by an SUV.

Davenport police say a bicyclist was hit and killed by a hit-and-run SUV that ran a red light on Thursday afternoon. Police later caught the driver, 33-year-old Bobby Hunt of Davenport.

He faces a list of charges, including homicide by reckless driving, in the death of 40-year-old cyclist Alex Marietta of Geneseo, Illinois.

During May, a 13-year-old boy on a bicycle was hit and killed by a Moline, Illinois, police SUV that was responding to a call, while a 60-year-old man on a bike was also fatally struck and killed by an SUV in Rock Island County.

Crash Date - June 3rd 2021

Iowa needs a safe passing distance law requiring vehicles to change lanes to pass. We need to end unsafe driving with increased penalties and appropriate reckless driving charges. We need trails, bike lanes, and paved shoulders.
