A teen truck driver who ran over six cyclists in
A truck driver, identified only as a 16-year-old male, ran over several cyclists as he intentionally tried to blow exhaust on them, one of the riders said. The incident, which sent four cyclists to the hospital, occurred in Waller, a city located northwest of Houston.
"I thought someone was dead," cyclist Chase Ferrell said, according to KRIV. "I heard a lot of crunching. I heard brakes. Tires screeching. People screaming."Advertisement
The Houston Chronicle reported on Tuesday that the teen was not arrested on the scene, and authorities would not answer whether he would be charged. Ferrell told the Chronicle that the driver's parents arrived on the scene "within minutes," and the driver walked away without arrest.
Ferrell said the teen's immediate concern after the collision was: "Do you think I'm going to jail?"
"Yeah, you did something really freaking stupid," Ferrell recalled telling the teen, according to the Chronicle. "You should go to jail."
