Driver Pleads Guilty To Lesser Charges In Bike Incident

Oct 13, 2016

Randy Crump pleaded guilt to lesser charges related to a 2015 bike crash.

A retired Eureka school superintendent accepted a plea offer yesterday that would reduce felony reckless driving and reckless conduct charges to misdemeanors.  

A new traffic citation for improper lane usage was also added to the agreement.  He was sentenced to 100 hours of community service,  18 months of conditional discharge, and to pay fines and court costs.

Crump is charged for a July 2015 incident which involved bicyclists described as intentional harassment. Crump allegedly stopped short and forced  bicyclist Dean Davis into the ditch along on a rural road near Hudson. Davis was seriously injured, hospitalized, and underwent extensive rehabilitation.

The jury trial was scheduled to begin Oct. 11. A trial earlier this year ended in mistrial after the jury was unable to reach a verdict.
