Charges follow cyclist's death
A Palmerston North man has been charged over the death of accomplished cyclist and former Hokowhitu School deputy principal Jocelyn Lee Goodwin.
Jason Paul McGahey, 43, appeared before a registrar in the Palmerston North District Court this morning charged with careless driving causing Goodwin's death.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of three months' imprisonment or a $4500 fine, and a minimum driver's licence disqualification of six months.
Goodwin died in April at the scene of a crash, which involved a truck-and-trailer unit, on Summerhill Drive.
Goodwin was an avid cyclist who competed in Masters events, especially time trials.
McGahey was remanded until next month.
