TRAGIC: Rasmussen

A DRUNK driver who killed a British cyclist in Spain has avoided jail.

Tourist Bryan Leeds, 25, from the US, was arrested after hitting father-of-three Philip Rasmussen, 47, from behind in Menorca.

The American tested positive for alcohol and drugs at the roadside.

He later produced a prescription for amphetamine tablets being used to treat an unidentified health condition.

Leeds was released on a €10,000 bail and the ban on him leaving the island has now been lifted following his court appearance.

He can leave the Balaeric on a one-year suspended jail sentence.

Briton Rasmussen, from Wales, died at the scene.

He was the CFO at a manufacturer which makes parts for Apple’s iPhones.
