UPDATED AT 11:45 A.M. EASTERN — News sources have corrected earlier information and are now reporting that no children were among the dead or injured. 

Your prayers are coveted this evening for the families of five bicyclists killed and others severely injured after a driver barreled his pickup truck into a group of adult and children bicyclists near Kalamazoo, Michigan.


According to Wood TV, a fisherman shouted a warning to the cyclists after his own foot was nearly run over by the truck, but it was too late. There has been no word yet if any of the children were among those killed, but Fox 17 is reporting at least some were among the four people severely injured.

After the collision, the driver fled on foot before being captured by police. Authorities have not indicated yet if the driver had full control of his truck during the crash.
