A white bicycle stands tied to a pole at the corner of Waugh and West Gray in Houston as a memorial for a deceased cyclist. The 24-year-old woman was the victim of a hit and run accident on December 1st while riding her bike back home.
The motorist who struck the cyclist, a 35-year-old woman, was arrested on a hit and run charge that occurred after an alleged night of drinking and driving.
After the cyclist was found alive but seriously injured on the curb, she was taken to a Houston hospital where she died days later. Authorities were unable to gather witnesses of the car crash or any information that could have placed more serious charges on the driver. She was eventually only accused with a hit and run charge after she intentionally failed to stop to provide care and assistance to the victim.
Cries for Justice
