Good grief. From the San Francisco Chronicle:
Three neighborhoods invaded by one car Wednesday night with a driver bent on mowing people down. Four bicyclists left sprawled on the pavement. Six minutes from start to finish, from first victim to last.

This story is awful in every way. (Link to story on Drunkcyclist, not always completely SFW). See more about the memorial ride here, including lots of photos.

As usual, it’s a hit-from-behind accident. There is not much information available yet. The young driver fled the scene but was caught. Apparently the driver swerved into the bike lane and hit the cyclist.
AZ Daily Star Article here.
