A group of cyclists in America are seeking answers after one of their members was involved in a hit-and-run accident. 

According to reports, a woman driver hit a member of the Estero Flatlanders Cycling Group and then failed to stop at the scene. 

A number of the riders managed to get a description of the car and part of the registration plate, however only one eye-witness was questioned by the police. 

The cyclists now want to know why more wasn’t done to punish the driver. 

“All of a sudden I’m on the hood of the car,” said the cycling accident victim. 

“I’m lucky to be alive to fight this now because if I was dead, this lady would be off with just a citation.”

The Sheriff’s report says that the 70-year-old driver hit the cyclist who rolled on to the bonnet of the car and then on to the floor. The driver then sped off. 

A spokesperson from the Naples Pathway coalition said, “We don’t understand why this driver would hit a cyclist, know she hit a cyclist and leave the scene of the crash and the only thing that happens to her is a summons to appear in court about leaving the scene of the crash.

“She should have been arrested,”
