Road rage caught on cyclist's helmet cam will be decided by jury
Tuesday, August 2, 2011


LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC (WIS) - A man accused of being the driver who was caught on video bumping a cyclist with his van and then taking off has elected to have a jury decide his fate.

53-year-old Donald Craig Frick stood in a Lexington County courtroom Tuesday morning across from the man whose helmet cam caught an alleged road rage incident on video July 1 as he was cycling in Lexington County.

The camera cyclist Bartholomew James Wellisley had attached to his helmet that day while riding on St. Peters Church Rd. near Dreher Island Rd. shows a minivan side swiping him and then speeding ahead of him.

Wellisley can be heard arguing with the driver of the minivan and yelling out the license plate of the vehicle to himself so he could record the information. After the bump, Wellisley pulled his bike over and called 911.

Lexington County deputies eventually tracked down the van at Frick's Irmo home and, after questioning him, charged him with harassing a cyclist and failing to maintain a safe operating distance from a bicyclist.

In court Tuesday, Magistrate Rebecca Adams granted Frick's wish for jury trial. That trial is scheduled to happen September 22.

If convicted, Frick faces a fine of $250.00 or greater and up to 30 days in jail.
