Group of bicyclists run down in Arizona


Despite the sensationalist wording in the link, no one's died...yet.

A Black Super Duty Ford F150 hit multiple bicyclists near the westbound lanes of Highway 60 in front of Horne Auto Collision Center before driving away from the scene, authorities said. The incident happened during a "Bike the Bluff" event.

Officers pursued the driver to the area of South 3rd Drive and West Oliver, authorities said. An officer shot the suspect behind a nearby Ace Hardware store.

Six of the bicyclists were transported to a local hospital, four of which were in critical condition, authorities said. The other two were in critical condition but stable. The suspect, who has yet to be identified by police, is also in critical condition but stable, authorities said.

I would not be surprised to learn "done made me mad" will be the driver's "defense." Remember, Republicans in several states are fighting to make running people over with a massive insecurity-binky-on-wheels legal if there's a protest involved; how far of a stretch do you think it is from "protest" to "minor inconvenience"?
