Timothy Wolf, 42, will be arraigned Wednesday morning on two counts of vehicular homicide and one count of willful or wanton disregard of public safety in connection with a Sept. 17 crash in Brecksville. Wolf was driving west on Snowville Road, and five cyclists were riding east on Snowville. When Wolf attempted to turn left onto Dewey Road, he struck the cyclists.

North Canton resident Matthew Billings, 33, died at the scene. Cuyahoga Falls resident Jim Lambert, 52, died Sept. 25. The three other riders were injured, as well.

The crash became a flashpoint in the ongoing conversation about driver-cyclist safety and accountability in Northeast Ohio. “I just want people to be aware that there’s other people on the road that have a right to be there too,” Maureen Billings, Matthew’s mother, told WEWS in an interview.
