Oconomowoc driver will go to court in October
An Oconomowoc man, charged with second-degree recklessly endangering safety, waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Waukesha County Circuit Court this morning.
Michael D. Quick, 57, stands accused of striking cyclist Eric Maas, 57, with his SUV near Highway D and Waterville Road in the Town of Ottawa on June 30.
According to reports, Quick approached from the rear in a large SUV after Maas had gone out into traffic to pass two other bicyclists. Quick allegedly began to blow his horn at Maas who responded with an obscene hand gesture.
Maas stated in the complaint that Quick then swerved into him, striking him and knocking him off his bike. He sustained road rash to his legs and buttocks and broken bones in his left hand.
Quick's next court date is scheduled for Oct. 19; he faces up to $25,000 in fines and up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
