Probation for driver that killed Michigan triathlete angers cyclists
Michigan’s cycling community was outraged Thursday after a 70-year-old Lima Township man was sentenced to probation and ordered to pay $3,000 in fines and court costs in the Aug. 26 death of Ann Arbor triathlete Karen McKeachie.
McKeachie, 63, of Chelsea was struck and killed while cycling with two others on Dexter-Chelsea Road in Lima Township. Terry Lee Lacroix was trying to pass another vehicle when he hit her, according to Michigan State Police. He pleaded guilty in March to a misdemeanor charge of a moving violation causing death.
