According to the official report filed by the State Police, Mr. Hahn gave a statement in which he said he was dirving south on River Road: "eating a breakfast sandwich from McDonald's when he struck a bicyclist riding south on River Road in the southbound lane."

So much for the unavoidable accident claim by his attorney. After hitting Mike, Hahn didn't stop, drove away from the scene and went to work. The judge set bond at FIFTEEN THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!! Thats right, $10, 000 for running Mike down, $5,000 for leaving the scene and $100 each for the traffic charges. Judge Johnson set the bond which I am sure was posted before Hahn spent any time in jail.

We have to make ouselves heard about this. If we don't then you can be sure that Hahn won't spend anytime in jail. Its up to us to let the District Attorney and the Judge know that enough is enough. This man needs to be convicted and go to jail as an example to other criminally negligent drivers.

I also want to remind all of you about the Colin Goodier Memorial Ride on Saturday, June 19, starting at 8:00 from Pharr Park. We need to turn out in big numbers to make our voices heard.
