CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — A jury has convicted a man charged in a hit-and-run crash that killed a motorcyclist south of Denver.

Prosecutors announced Friday that 49-year-old Ronald Hargrove, of Parker, was found guilty last week of vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a fatal accident. He is scheduled to be sentenced May 28.

Investigators say 69-year-old Suzanne Weston, also of Parker, was riding single file with three other motorcyclists on U.S. Highway 85 in Douglas County when she was hit by Hargrove’s pickup on Oct. 12, 2017. According to witnesses, Hargrove got out of his truck, looked at Weston, and then drove away.

District Attorney George Brauchler called Hargrove “gutless” and said he deserves prison.
