STERLING – No charges have been filed in a fatal accident last summer north of Sterling, but the victim’s family has sued the other driver.
About 7:45 p.m. June 5, motorcyclist Samuel L. Munz, 53, of rural Sterling, was hit from behind by an SUV driven by Theresa A. Ruf, 42, of Chadwick. He was pronounced dead shortly afterward.
Munz was riding his motorcycle on state Route 40 about a half-mile east of Ridge Road. He had stopped to turn left into his driveway when Ruf’s SUV hit him.
