DENVER — A man accused of driving drunk when he hit and killed a father who was riding his bicycle on Lookout Mountain Road near Golden has pleaded guilty vehicular homicide and DUI.
The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/UnA5oz ) 20-year-old Zachary Strnad entered his plea Tuesday in the Aug. 21 crash that killed 38-year-old Thomas Flanagan, of Golden. Strnad, of Aurora, is scheduled to be sentenced March 11.
Colorado State Patrol Trooper Nate Reid said after the crash that Strnad passed at least two vehicles on the left over a double-yellow line on a blind uphill left curve when he hit the bicycle head-on. Strnad's blood-alcohol content was 0.204 percent, more than twice the legal limit for driving.
Flanagan, who worked for the National Park Service, is survived by his wife and young son.
