He first hit a mother and daughter on bikes, injuring both of them, then struck a pickup truck, injuring the three people inside. Then, Singh struck and killed Nicholas Haverland, a 20-year old college student who was riding his bicycle. The man drove to his home, where he was later arrested.

Singh faces a sentence of 15 years, to life.
