Rondell L. Dungy, the man who collided with five cyclists in a hit-and-run on Saturday, was arraigned this morning.

Dungy, 27, is charged with aggravated vehicular assault and suspected OVI, for the incident on St. Clair Avenue. The cyclists were struck at 2:35 a.m., and all five were transported to University Hospital.

The cyclists were riding in St. Clair's westbound curb lane at the time of the crash. One of the cyclists was also hit by a woman driving a Chevy Cobalt behind Dungy's car; she fled the scene.



The victims included three females, one aged 17 and two aged 24, as well as 42- and 45-year-old men. The latter are in stable condition at the hospital, and the three females have been released.

Dungy has pleaded not guilty and received a bond set at $15,000.

The female driver has yet to be caught, and the Cleveland Police urge anyone with information to call 216-621-1234.
