Driver walks free after hitting six cyclists, killing one in Liberty County

This is awful. I gather that the U.S. police sometimes wait to press charges, so there may be further developments.

A Massachusetts man was killed outside Houston Saturday when a driver crashed into a group of cyclists who were near the midway point of a 2,400-mile cross-country bicycle ride. 

Police identified the slain cyclist as 51-year-old Kent Joshua Wosepka from South Hamilton, Massachusetts. He was among six cycling enthusiasts making their annual trek from San Diego to St. Augustine, Florida, when the collision occurred. The group was heading east on FM 787 in Liberty County, approximately three miles outside Rye, Texas, around 11 a.m. when a 66-year-old man driving a Ford Escape "failed to maintain [his] speed" and crashed into the group, according to Sgt. Erik Burse of Texas DPS.
