BETHEL — The Oxford County Sheriff’s Office does not anticipate any charges against a Turner driver whose van collided with a Bethel bicyclist Sept. 2, a deputy said Monday.
Jay G. Herr, 80, received serious injuries in the Route 5 collision with a van driven by Anthony Casella, 47, of Turner. He died Sept. 13 in Lewiston, according to his obituary.
Deputy Andy Whitney said Herr, who was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, was taken to Stephens Memorial Hospital in Norway.
“Unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries a couple of weeks later,” Whitney said.
Casella was not injured in the accident.
Whitney said that although the investigation into the accident continues, the Sheriff’s Office does not anticipate any charges to be filed against Casella.
Chief Deputy Hart Daley said the Sheriff’s Office had not received any word from the District Attorney’s office about moving forward with any charges.
