CLEVELAND - Five bicyclists were struck in a hit-skip accident that left three of them in critical condition early Saturday morning.

Rondell L. Dungy, 27, was also traveling westbound on St. Clair Avenue in a Chevrolet Impala, when he struck the five cyclists, throwing them into the roadway.

During the accident, the two cars also hit each other.

Police are still looking for the female driver who fled the scene.
