    LITTLETON, Colo. -- A Littleton man accused of causing a crash that killed a fellow bicyclist will
    face a criminal charge.

    Scott Weeks, 35, is accused of careless driving resulting in death, a misdemeanor.

    Authorities say 60-year-old Thomas Fox of Ken Caryl Ranch was riding south along the Mary Carter
    Greenway Trail on the afternoon of Oct. 10 when the northbound Weeks struck him on a blind curve.

    They crashed head-on and the impact snapped off the front forks of both bikes.

    Fox was pronounced dead at the scene. Weeks was taken to Swedish Hospital and treated for back pain.

    Investigators said drugs and alcohol were not factors in the crash.
