Another Fallen Comrade: Hit and Run in Texas

Debbie McGregor, a 41 year old Ironman triathlete from Plano, Texas was struck from behind in a hit and run collision on Wed.

Authorities are currently looking for a silver or white car reported to be involved. From the extent of the injuries sustained by McGregor, they believe there should be visible damage to the car. McGregor’s Kuota bike was “shattered.” The triathlete herself was thrown 30 feet from the site of impact. She was assisted at the scene by an off duty nurse and taken to Plano Presbyterian Hospital in Critical Condition.

Our prayers and thoughts go out to McGregor and her family/friends. Remember to ride defensively out there, and assume that every car is driven by a drunk, high, texting jackass that is an inspiration for birth control like the person who did this and fled.

Let’s hope for a speedy recovery and justice.

Anyone with information about the accident is urged to call Officer Derrick Hodges of The Colony Police Department at (972) 625-1887.
