SPOKANE, Wash. - The man a Spokane Valley bar owner is accused of killing in an Monday night collision has been identified.

Scott Reckord, 49, is accused of hitting 56-year-old David Squires as he rode his bicycle in a crosswalk at Sprague and Division around 7 p.m.

Squires' niece says he was an avid bicyclist who was on his way home from dinner when he was hit.

Following the collision, Reckord left the scene but was followed by a witness for about 20 blocks before he turned around and headed back.

After smelling alcohol on his breath police on scene administered a field sobriety test on Reckord, a test they say he failed. Reckord claims he had two beers about two hours before the hit-and-run.

Squires was transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries where he later died.

Reckord, who is listed in state records as the owner of a Spokane Valley bar, was arrested and charged with Vehicular Homicide and Felony Hit and Run.  Reckord posted bail Tuesday evening and was released from the Spokane County Jail.  A condition of his release states he will not be allowed in any bars or pubs except his own and then, only for work purposes.

Reckord has a misdemeanor conviction dating back 15 years for negligent driving. He has no other criminal history.
