Sep. 26—A pickup truck reportedly hit a group of people cycling Saturday morning in Waller County, a rural area where riders are known to go for long weekend country rides.

Six were injured, including two taken by Life Flight and two taken by ambulance for treatment, said Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry. The two others declined emergency transport.

The incident occurred on the eastbound side of U.S. 290 around GH Circle, Guidry said. This was right at the city limits of Waller, leaving the case in the hands of the Waller Police Department.

A cyclist with the group described to Fox 26, which first reported the incident, how the driver of a diesel pickup truck allegedly hassled the riders by slowing down and then accelerating to blow smoke at them.

“There was no reason for this to happen,” the rider, Chase Ferrell, told the news station.
