The Bowser resident who was charged with failing to remain at the scene of an accident which took the life of 48-year-old Lake Trail teacher and cyclist Paul Bally will make his second appearance in court Thursday.

Timothy David Prad, 55, is scheduled to elect his mode of trial for the December incident where Bally, 48 was struck on his bike by a southbound vehicle on Highway 19A near Curran Road in Fanny Bay.

Acting on a tip received through CrimeStoppers, Comox Valley RCMP attended a property in the area and located the truck at Prad’s residence.

He was taken into police custody Dec. 17 and charged a day later. He was released on recognizance and granted a $2,000 bail with conditions.

The sentence carries a maximum charge of life in prison.
