A 40-year-old man has been charged with reckless driving after he struck a group of bicyclists with his vehicle Saturday night in west suburban Oswego.
About 7:30 p.m., Lamar Smith was driving eastbound on Route 34 and when he lost control of his vehicle and struck the bicyclists on the sidewalk, according to a statement from Oswego police.
