David Herzog heard the impact. "We absolutely heard it. There were bikes breaking. It was a sad state of affairs," says David.

"Everybody was yelling, 'hey, stop, stop!' She just plowed into the middle of us," says Cheryl Herzog, a bicyclist who narrowly avoided being hit. "She had this big huge gash on her head because her helmet cut into her head and it broke off, it was terrible."

Police say the sun glare may have played a factor with the driver not seeing the cyclists.

Commerce Drive was closed in both directions while police investigated the wreck.
