AUSTIN, Texas -- Two people have been charged after crashing into a group of cyclists early Saturday, sending four people to the hospital, according to KVUE's news partners at the Austin American-Statesman.

Devin Donnel Rodriguez, 25, was driving near South Pleasant Valley Road and Elmont Drive when he allegedly struck a group of cyclists. When police arrived, officers said they found four people bleeding in the street. All of the cyclists were taken to the hospital where it was revealed that one of the victims was bleeding inside her brain, the Statesman said.
