Bicyclist to hospital after hit-and-run accident with Ford Mutang

A blue Ford Mustang hit and woman bicyclist and then a building at the North Loop at North Main on Saturday night at around 1:20am. The woman was crossing the intersection on her bicycle when the Mustang struck her. Eyewitness Rick Halliburton said several drivers were waiting at the red light and was watching the woman make her way across the intersection when the Mustang began to weave through traffic and then hit her. Halliburton said the Mustang driver did not stop, the actually sped up: he tried to pass a truck on the right and hit the bicycle on the rear wheel, flipping the lady off the bike.
Several people tried to follow the Mustang after it fled but were unable to keep up. The driver eventually lost control of the Mustang and crashed into a metal building at the 8900 block of North Main at Crosstimbers, causing damage to machinery and equipment inside. The bicyclist was alert at the scene when she was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital by EMS. The accident was under investigation and police do not believe alcohol was a factor.
