A truck driver who fatally struck a State Department employee riding her bike in Maryland — shortly after the diplomat had returned from a presumably more dangerous posting in Ukraine — pleaded guilty to a traffic offense Monday and was fined $2,000. Santos Reyes Martinez, 52, admitted in court to causing the death of Sarah Langenkamp 13 months ago when he turned his flatbed building supply truck into a bike lane along River Road in Bethesda.
