In June 2016, a group of cyclists known as the Chain Gang headed out for a ride in Kalamazoo County. About 20 minutes later in Cooper Township, a pickup truck plowed into the group, killing five of the riders.
Yesterday, the criminal trial for the driver of that truck, Charles Pickett, Jr. began.
Michigan Radio’s Bryce Huffman is covering the trial. He spoke with Morning Edition host Doug Tribou.
