SALT LAKE CITY — Criminal charges were filed Friday against a motorist accused of critically injuring a bicyclist in 2015.

Prosecutors allege that Kim Harrison "Mad Dog" Dare, 52, of Salt Lake City, was going well over the speed limit and driving with marijuana in his system when he ran a red light and hit Skyler Bradley.

"Mr. Bradley suffered a traumatic brain injury, skull fracture, spine fracture, and a pelvic fracture. Mr. Bradley spent 18 days in the hospital," according to charging documents.

Dare was charged in 3rd District Court with driving with measurable controlled substance in the body and causing serious injury or death, a third-degree felony; as well as speeding, having no insurance, driving on a suspended license, and a license plate violation, all class C misdemeanors.

About 10:30 p.m. on July 10, 2015, prosecutors say Dare ran a red light at the intersection of Main Street and North Temple and hit Bradley while traveling between 47 and 53 mph, according to charging documents. The speed limit for the area is 30 mph.

Dare tested positive for THC, the charges state. Detectives learned that Dare's driver's license was suspended at the time, he did not have insurance, the car he was driving was not registered, and the license plate on his vehicle had been reported lost by Larry H. Miller Used Car Supermarket, according to the charges.
