All that remained after the wreck were mangled bicycles.
As detectives continue their investigation into what happened Saturday afternoon when a 16-year-old plowed his truck into a crowd of cyclists riding outside Houston, the Waller County district attorney’s office hinted Wednesday at possible charges that could soon be filed against the driver.
The teen was driving a large black Ford Super Duty pickup along Old Highway 290 in Waller when he hit six cyclists who were training for the Ironman Triathlon. Witnesses said the teen was trying to blow thick exhaust onto the group before hitting them. The teen’s attorney, Houston-based lawyer Rick DeToto, called the incident a “serious accident” but one that “did not involve any criminal intent.”
