Court dates rescheduled in cyclist crash case

Posted:

AUGUSTA (AP) - Court dates have been rescheduled for a 21-year-old man accused of driving into and injuring a group of bicyclists traveling through Arkansas on a cross-country trip.

Prosecutor John Bell said Tuesday that Teagan Ross Martin's case has been reset for Jan. 7, with a pretrial hearing set for Dec. 4.

Martin of Newport faces a negligent homicide charge after one of the cyclists died this summer. He also faces one count of careless and prohibited driving and 13 counts related to overtaking a bicycle. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Eighteen-year-old Merritt Levitan, of Milton, Mass., died from her injuries following the July 2 crash near McCrory. Several other cyclists were hurt.

Martin's lawyers didn't immediately return a phone message on Tuesday.
