TUCSON - Pima County Sheriff's deputies are expected to resume their search for a driver who fled after colliding with ten bicyclists and seriously injuring five during the El Tour de Tucson ride.
The five injured were taken to hospitals Saturday where four are expected to recover.
Deputy Dawn Barkman says the most seriously injured was 42-year-old Gary L. Stuebe of Surprise.
Barkman says the riders were headed west and the motorist was headed east and was turning left.
After failing to yield to a pack of about 60 bicyclists, the driver continued to make his turn, then stopped and got out of his car, looked at the damage and the damaged bicycles, got back in his car and completed his turn.
Onlookers got pictures of the wreckage and may have gotten a picture of the man or his car.
Barkman says the car was described as a gold- or silver-colored Honda or Toyota with extensive damage.
The man was described as elderly, 6 feet tall, 190 pounds, with metal-framed glasses. He wore dark, possibly dark gray, clothing.
