    Is the picture used in this article the actual vehicle owned by the 56 year old man from Coopersville who is at fault in this case, or is the picture being used from a different situation? Where was this picture taken and when?

    How was the driver at fault? The story clearly states that the man on the bicycle failed to stop. Both the driver and the bicyclist are victims in this tragic accident. Prayers for both of them.
