If a drunk and high person took a gun, that’s premeditated murder. How is it different when he choose to drive a car?
If he was such an upright and respectable citizen as his character witnesses testified, then he should take personal responsibility for his actions.
His witnesses also need to take a good long hard look at their values and character as well.

Oregon recently beefed up its statutes covering duty of drivers to cyclists, and penalties
(http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/811.html),
but the police still tend to favor (and not cite) drivers,
or not even respond to the scene of accidents
(personal experience).
