Police Shoot Driver Who Struck Cyclists at Arizona Bike Race

Six people were seriously injured when a man driving a pickup truck plowed into cyclists at a bike race in Show Low, Ariz., the police said. The driver was then shot and wounded by the police.

The driver of a pickup truck hit a group of cyclists at a bicycle race in Show Low, Ariz., on Saturday, seriously injuring six people before the driver fled and was shot by the police, the authorities said.

The driver of the truck, a black Ford Super Duty, struck the bicyclists during the Bike the Bluff race at about 7:25 a.m. local time, the police said.

Officers tried to stop the driver, which “ultimately led to the suspect being shot,” about a mile and a half away, Navajo County Emergency Management and Preparedness said in a statement.

The driver, a 35-year-old man, was in critical but stable condition, the agency said.

Six people were taken to a hospital. Four were in critical condition, and two were in critical but stable condition, the police said. Two or three other victims walked into the hospital, the police said.
