Motorist accused of Hit-and-Run was driving under suspension

Joseph Knott is accused of hitting and killing a bicyclist near Granville Saturday.

LICKING COUNTY, Ohio (WCMH)–Bond was set at $250,000 for a Canal Winchester man charged with aggravated vehicular homicide in connection with the hit and run death of a bicyclist in Granville Saturday night.

Joseph Knott refused to provide a urine sample but failed a field sobriety test when he was arrested by Newark police shortly after the accident. Police obtained a search warrant to get a sample. Knott said in court Monday that he refused the test because he wasn’t driving.

This memorial on Granville-Newark Road was left in the area where 23-year-old Logan Snedeker was struck and killed.

Police say 23-year-old Logan Snedeker was struck while riding a bicycle eastbound on Granville-Newark Rd.

Snedeker was a 2011 graduate on Newark High School.

Investigators say Knott’s driving privileges have been suspended since at least 2007.

Franklin County issued a warrant for Knott’s arrest in July after he failed to appear in court on charges of driving under suspension and failure to control.
