CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a 16-year-old driver who fatally struck a cyclist in Coralville last month was speeding and using social media at the time of the accident.
The incident happened April 6, killing 36-year-old Andrew Pavlovec of North Liberty.
The Cedar Rapids Gazette reported Monday that the driver faces a charge of vehicular homicide.
Iowa law prevents naming minors charged with crimes that are not forcible felonies.
Coralville Police Chief Shane Kron says the driver was “actively using a social media application," and driving more than 20 mph above the 35 mph speed limit.
