The driver accused of hitting and killing a bicyclist in Marathon County will face a trial.

Investigators say Tracy Kruzicki hit and killed 44-year-old Tammy Gass while she was riding on County Road KK near Mosinee in May.

Kruzicki was charged with knowingly operating a motor vehicle while suspended that resulted in a death. He waived his preliminary hearing Thursday.

If convicted, Kruzicki could face six years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Newsline 9 tried to talk with both lawyers, but they declined to comment.

Gass' husband also died riding his bike on the same stretch of road in 2008.
