Woman pleads guilty in fatal crash

N-Woman-pleads-guilty-rieckman-susanA Cedar Springs woman pled guilty last week in the crash that took a 4-year-old Greenville boy’s life.

The accident occurred in September 2015. According to police, Susan Rieckman, 70, was driving a pickup truck east on M-57 then turned left on to M-91 and hit 4-year-old Talos Bills in the crosswalk. He reportedly had his red scooter, and was crossing the street with his teenaged cousin. He only lived a couple of blocks away.

WOODTV reported that a witness at the scene said Rieckman continued driving away, and he chased down the truck, banging on it with his hands. The man reported she said it just felt like a bump.

As part of a plea deal, Rieckman pled guilty to a charge of operating with a suspended license causing death. Her license reportedly had been revoked for medical reasons.

She will be sentenced at a later date. Under the plea deal, she could get a year in jail and five years probation.
