Police revealed today that a Red Deer woman has been charged in connection with a hit and run involving a cyclist in Riverside Meadows on March 11.

Red Deer RCMP previously reported that the collision occurred after officers identified a stolen car being driven in the area at about 10 p.m.

When the stolen car drove off at a high rate of speed, officers did not pursue the vehicle for public safety reasons, but tracked the vehicle at a distance as other officers prepared to intercept the suspects.

While the stolen vehicle sped away, it collided with a cyclist at the corner of 60th Street and 54th Avenue.

The vehicle did not stop and was found abandoned on 56th Avenue.

Following an investigation, Cora Nichole Bush, 35, was arrested without incident on Friday and was charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from a peace officer, failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm and failing to comply with conditions of an undertaking.

Bush was also arrested on 11 outstanding warrants.

Bush is scheduled to appear in Red Deer provincial court on April 10.

RCMP also identified the male passenger in the vehicle. He was taken into custody, but later released without charges.
