Timothy Prad, 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 return to court later this month.

He has entered a plea of not guilty.

Earlier last week, he appeared by himself in Supreme Court for breach of undertaking or recognizance dating from Jan. 18, 2015 for allegedly consuming alcohol.

Bally was struck on his bike by a southbound vehicle on Highway 19A near Curran Road in Fanny Bay last December.

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 was granted a $2,000 bail with conditions.

Prad will be back in court Oct. 29.
