A jury in Saline County has found a 64-year-old Salina man guilty of misdemeanor vehicular homicide in the death of bicyclist Gail Kline.

Before the verdict, Grider testified that he felt something hit his delivery van and stopped to survey the damage. Believing he had hit a deer, he continued on his trip.

49-year-old Kline was hit as she was riding alone west of Salina as part of the Kandango Bicycle Tour. A trucker found her in a ditch and called emergency officials.
