Decision may be close on bicycle fatality case

PRESCOTT -- Discussions have begun between the Sheriff's Office and the Yavapai County Attorney's Office concerning possible charges in response to the fatal crash on Cornville Road of an entrant in the MS Ride the Vortex fund-raising event.

Ethelyn Harline, 48, of Gilbert was riding her bicycle just west of the junction with Beaverhead Flats Road along with relatives on a tandem bicycle, when her bike was struck by a van driven by 90-year old Nelson Shaum of Cottonwood.

Harline was thrown from the bike, struck the windshield and then fell into the roadbed. She later died of injuries at Verde Valley Medical Center.

Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn says the office has requested more information in some areas and expects a decision to be made by the end of next week.

Who in their right mind issued the driver's license to a 90-year-old? Where's the common sense?

Driving from Cottonwood toward Interstate 17 today, I came up behind a person riding a bicycle slowly up the curves where there is a very narrow shoulder before the guardrail between Cornville and Beaver Hollow.

I immediately judged that it would be foolish to try to pass, and at that point I didn't even know if vehicles were coming toward me or not. I put on the hazard lights and creeped along behind, giving the cyclist plenty of room, until we got around a couple curves. Sure enough, vehicles were coming.

Did I waste time? Not on her life or mine. I didn't count, but I'm sure I didn't lose more than ten seconds. And I avoided either a head-on collision or hitting the cyclist.

Ten seconds of time is not worth either possibility
