A driver who hit and killed a cyclist in north Scottsdale May 23 had a suspended driver’s license, according to a police report.
Cyclist Michael (Miodrag) Milovanovic, 48, was on a training riding ride when he was hit by an SUV operated by Matthew L Stryer, police said. Stryer’s GMC drifted over the white line on Happy Valley Road when he hit Milovanovic, who died from his injuries at the hospital, police said.
A police report said Stryer’s driver’s license from another state was revoked or suspended.
“He ultimately will face that charge and possibly others in the future,” said Scottsdale Police Department spokesman Sgt. Ben Hoster, adding that the investigation is ongoing.
The police report said Stryer had “unknown distractions” when he crossed into the median and hit Milovanovic. Impairment was not a factor, the report said.
At the time of the collision, Milovanovic eagerly was looking forward to a high school graduation celebration for his son, Matt, a state champion Brophy Prep swimmer.
His daughter, Mimi, recently completed her freshman year at Loyola University on a full ride track scholarship. He also leaves behind a wife, Suzi, and hundreds of friends.
