SHENANDOAH, Iowa (AP) - A jury has convicted a Louisiana man whose pickup truck hit a bicyclist. The bicyclist was camping while participating in RAGBRAI. 

The Des Moines Register reports that 56-year-old Danny Cardin, of Homer, Louisiana, was found guilty of causing serious injury by vehicle. He was found not guilty of leaving the scene of a serious injury accident. His sentencing in the Fremont County Courthouse is scheduled for May 21.

An Iowa State Patrol report says James Foley, of Jacksonville, Florida, was sleeping in a tent at the 59er Motel & Campgrounds in Shenandoah on the night of July 17, 2016. That's when the pickup went off the driveway and struck the tent.

Foley had been participating in a statewide biking event known as RAGBRAI.
