A court case involving a man accused of being involved in a fatal vehicle-bicycle collision in Casper, is moving forward.

Thirty-five year old Lamont Arthur Junior is being bound over to district court on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and aggravated assault, after a judge ruled that prosecutors met their probable cause burden.

Arthur Junior is accused of being the driver of a vehicle that hit and killed Casper bicyclist, 39-year Matthew Harker, at the intersection of First and Beech Streets in late May.

At his preliminary hearing, a crash reconstructionist with the Wyoming Highway Patrol testified that Arthur Junior was going at least 36 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone at the time, and the brake pedal on the vehicle was what he said squishy, indicating the brakes were in bad shape.

He added that he the vehicle been going at the posted speed limit, or slower, then the collision probably would not have occurred.

Another investigator told the court that Arthur Junior acknowledged the brake situation on the vehicle, and blood and urine tests later showed, that there was alcohol in his system at the time of the collision.

The defense argued that when Harker turned into the intersection on a yellow light, he did not grant right of way to oncoming traffic.

Harker and Arthur Junior were traveling in opposite directions a short time before the collision.

Arthur Junior is being held on $75,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 20 years in prison on the aggravated vehicular homicide charge if convicted.
