Charges are pending against the driver of a car involved in a traffic accident that took the life of Jim Johnston, a science teacher in the Millard Public School District.
The driver is identified as 82-year-old Ruth Jeffers.
Authorities say she was driving the Ford Taurus involved in the accident at 260th and Center last Thursday.
Investigators say Jeffers was eastbound. Another car stopped in front of her to turn left. The driver of that second vehicle was waiting for a bicycle coming the other way. Johnston was riding that bike.
Jeffers saw the other car at the last minute, swerved to avoid it and hit the oncoming bicycle.
Johnston was a science teacher in Millard for more than 30 years. He leaves behind a wife and two children.
