Kirkwood Woman Charged In Crash That Killed Cyclist

April 27, 2012
A Kirkwood woman is facing criminal charges following a February crash that killed a bicyclist in University City.

Emily C. Hagan, 30, of the 400 block of North Clay Avenue, was charged April 12 with felony first-degree involuntary manslaughter and a misdemeanor for driving while intoxicated, court documents show.

Hagan had a blood alcohol content of 0.262 percent - more than three times that of the legal limit of 0.08 - when she struck and killed cyclist Samuel Scott in the 7500 block of Delmar Boulevard in University City on the night of Feb. 3, a probable cause statement filed with the case said. She also failed a sobriety test.

Hagan was following Scott too closely and hit the 19-year-old cyclist from behind, the statement said. The accident occurred at 11:18 p.m. on Feb. 3. Scott was taken to a nearby hospital and died the next day.

Hagan was taken into custody on April 12 and her bond was set at $25,000. She was released several days later after posting 10 percent - or $2,500 - of the cash bond. Hagan was ordered to wear an alcohol-monitoring ankle bracelet as a condition of her release, court documents said.

Hagan's attorney, Arthur Margulis, could not be reached for comment.

Hagan is scheduled to appear in court next on Tuesday, May 29.
