More than half a dozen people were critically injured in Arizona Saturday morning after police reported a man rammed a large pickup truck into a group of cyclists taking part in a charity race to raise money for a local Christian school.
At least nine drivers were injured after they were hit by a driver in Show Low, Arizona, before police shot him, according to authorities. The suspect was also in critical condition.
Police said a black Ford Super Duty truck hit several drivers on the 58-mile Bike the Bluff State Championship Road Race around 7:25 a.m. local time.

The suspect, a 35-year-old white man, tried to dodge the reacting officers, who shot him just over a mile away. He was also in critical condition.
"Our community is shocked by this incident and our hearts and prayers go with the injured and their families," the show said the Low Police Department in a statement.
A victim had to be flown to the hospital. Four were in critical condition. Two were in critical but stable condition, and two to three other victims went to the hospital themselves and were in stable condition, police said.
The Show Low Police Department ordered drivers to avoid the Highway 60 area near the Horne Auto Collision Center while investigating the accident.
