Woman Accused of Striking, Killing Bicyclist Sentenced

Elyria - The woman accused of striking and killing a bicyclist in June of 2019, then leaving the scene, has been sentenced.

65-year-old Sharan Carr orginally entered a guilty plea November 19th to aggravated vehicular homicide, failure to stop and operating a vehicle under the influence.

The Lorain County Prosecutor's Office requested a three and a half year sentence, which was agreed upon as part of Carr's plea deal.

Carr struck and killed 66-year-old Richard "Randy" Knilans on June 6th, 2019 off Lake Road. She then fled the scene.

Carr turned to apologize to Knilans' family when given the chance to speak Friday in court.

"I just want everyone to know from the bottom of my heart, if I could've exchanged anything from that day, I would," she said. "I am truly sorry from the bottom of my heart. I'm sorry for the police department. I live my life like probably like almost all of you, very forthright, and for this to have happened, it's horrible."

The courtroom was at near capacity with friends and family of Knilans, including his Son, Daughter and Widow.

Carr has been ordered to report to prison to begin serving her term February 17th.
