Man Gets 60 Days In Cyclist Death

KSAL StaffOctober 21, 2014
A Salina man is arrested in connection with a fatal hit and run accident.

A 64-year-old Salina man has been sentenced to 60 days in prison in the fatal hit-and-run death of a bicyclist.

A Saline County judge handed down the punishment to Dennis Grider on Monday. He was also ordered to serve 36 months of probation after the jail time.

A jury convicted Grider last month of misdemeanor vehicular homicide and a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident. He struck and killed 49-year-old Gail Kline in May 2013. She was riding alone west of Salina as part of the Kandango Bicycle Tour. A trucker found her in a ditch and called emergency officials.

Grider testified he didn’t see Kline on the road and thought he struck a deer.
