Driver faces charge in death of Lukas Smith

Niagara police have charged a St. Catharines man in a fatal crash that killed a Niagara-on-the-Lake man last July.

Lukas Smith, 41, was out for a bike ride with his son 13-year-old Riley about 9:30 on the night of July 11.

They were stopped along Irvine Road near Scott Street, not far from their home, so Smith could fix something on his son's bike when a southbound Toyota Corolla struck Smith.

He died later in hospital.

The driver remained on the scene and Niagara Regional Police have spent the last seven months investigating the incident.

On Feb. 3 investigators announced they have charged Cody Sullivan, 28, with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death.

He was released and is to appear in court on April 13.
