Police cite passenger in fatal auto-bicycle crash
WEYBRIDGE — The passenger in the vehicle that struck and killed 55-year-old old Kelly Boe on April 14 was arrested the next day and cited for violating the conditions of his release.
Tracy Yandow, 52, of Ripton had been on release on the condition that he not consume alcohol. Vermont State Police contend that Yandow had been drinking on the day that Nathan Dearing allegedly drove a vehicle into Boe while he was cycling with his wife on Hamilton Road in Weybridge.
Dearing, 27, pleaded innocent this past Wednesday in Addison Superior Court’s criminal division to a felony count of driving under the influence with death resulting, and a misdemeanor count of driving with a suspended license for the fifth time, in connection with the incident.
Dearing faces up to 17 years in prison on the criminal charges and additional time on a separate violation of parole offense. Dearing is currently being held on $75,000 bail.
Authorities allege that Dearing was drunk when he drove a red 1997 Subaru Impreza across the center line of Hamilton Road in Weybridge and struck Boe in plain view of his wife, Kathleen, who had accompanied him on the bike ride. Boe, a Middlebury resident and manager of Middlebury College’s central heating plant, could not be revived at the scene, according to VSP Trooper Jake Bloom, who investigated the accident.
State police said Dearing admitted to drinking one 24-ounce Bud Ice can at approximately 4:45 p.m. on the evening of the accident. He also allegedly told authorities that he and Yandow had both been drinking beers while driving around in the car.
Yandow is scheduled to be arraigned on May 18 in the Addison County courthouse on a charge of violation of conditions of release.
