    Hit and run at Jensie Fran Fondo - suspect tracked down and arrested

    https://www.google.com/amp/sanfranci...lists-hit/amp/

    It really bothers me that aggressive or careless drivers either don't understand lives are at stake, or don't care.

    No fatalities on this one but at least one severe injury and 4 riders hit.

    He should be tried for a terrorist act. This is why I stopped road riding.

    I was roughly 10 minutes behind them .. It was not fun rolling up on that scene. Those guys passed me on the last hill climb.. glad I was slow and lazy that day.
    Jens was no more then 5 min behind me...

    the perp was driving a pickup truck...

    seems like almost every one that passes me lately does so with complete disregard for safety...too fast, too close, not yielding ROW at intersections.

    frequently get stink-eye looks from the drivers.

    as a class of vehicles, they're pretty much at the top of the list of ones to be involved in something sketchy.
    the 45th POTUS is inept, corrupt, and a pathological liar. and those may be his better qualities...

    This is rural north bay .. pickups are dime a dozen. I saw atleast 1000 Harley too.. I think the motorcyclist with the camera was likely one of those guys that provided video to catch the loser.. so thanks to them all

    I can't imagine rolling up to the scene. I was supposed to ride the 70 mile route, but do to an injury, I have been off the bike for about a month and decided to bail down to the 40 mile.

    I haven't heard an update on the injured riders. Hoping the best for them.

    It has been reported that the driver received a DUI a few months ago. Combined with the relatively high profile of the event, he will get more than a slap on the wrist.
