The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that a bicyclist who fatally struck a pedestrian in the Castro district has been charged with vehicular manslaughter.

From the report:

A charge of felony vehicular manslaughter has been filed against Chris Bucchere, the bicyclist who fatally struck a 71-year-old pedestrian in the Castro back in March.

Law enforcement sources tell us a San Francisco judge signed Bucchere's arrest warrant Wednesday and that the defendant is expected to surrender to police for booking before the week is out.

We'll have more later on this.
