A bicyclist from California received serious injuries Wednesday just west of Houston when a bale of hay fell off a trailer truck and struck her.
Sgt. Jeff Kinder said Frieda M. McKaughan, 55, of Sacramento, Calif., was hit by the bale on a truck driven by Billy J. Davis, 26, of Willow Springs.
Davis left the scene unaware that a bale had fallen and was contacted by officers.
McKaughan was flown to St. Johns’ Hospital in Springfield.
