Criminal charges filed in fatal motorcycle vs bicycle crash

Codi Miller is facing seven charges related to a motorcycle vs bicycle crash that happened over the weekend. 

(Note: Authorities had previously spelled Codi Miller as "Cody Miller", but the criminal complaint spells Miller's name as "Codi J. Miller")

The criminal complaint was filed on Wednesday. 

According to the probable cause statement in the complaint, Miller told a deputy he was traveling eastbound on CTH KK at State Park Rd. when he saw a purple PT Cruiser in front of him. While traveling eastbound on CTH KK at State Park Rd., he saw the PT Cruiser veer off into the westbound lane. Miller told the deputy that as soon as the PT Cruiser merged back into the eastbound lane, he saw a person in front of him on a bicycle traveling southbound, crossing the intersection of State Park Rd. and CTH KK.

Miller said by the time he saw the bicycle, it was too late. He tried to serve and miss the bicycle but clipped the rear tire. Miller stated he then dumped his motorcycle while trying to miss the bicycle.

According to the criminal complaint, Miller admitted to a deputy that he had been drinking. The statement also says that DOT records show Miller was revoked due to alcohol and had three prior OWI convictions. DOT records also indicated that Miller had a .02 operating restriction.

The complaint states: "The Motor Vehicle Division records revealed that the defendant’s privilege to operate a motor vehicle in the State of Wisconsin was under revocation on August 19, 2018 due to an alcohol related conviction. Records further indicate the defendant is not eligible to reinstate until November 7, 2020. The records further indicate that Codi J. Miller is required to have an Ignition Interlock Device installed in any vehicle he operates."
