Two bicycle riders, one of them pregnant, were struck and injured in a hit-and-run incident Monday night in south Hanford, according to Hanford police.

The male and female cyclists were riding their BMX-style bicycles north on 10 1/2 Avenue south of Hanford-Armona Road about 10:29 p.m. when they were struck from behind by what has been described as a black Cadillac truck.

Police say the vehicle was traveling at a "high rate of speed" when it slammed into the two.
