This video may be difficult for some to watch shows a man on a bicycle in the Phoenix area being run down by a woman in a Ford Mustang. The incident, which took place at 13th Place and Hatcher on April 29, was captured on surveillance video that was posted to YouTube. It shows the Mustang slamming into the cyclist and sending him airborne over the vehicle and onto the pavement.
The driver doesn’t stop, leaving the man in the street. Eventually he gets up and stumbles around. He lived but was injured. A source told 12 News that the woman — Misty Lee Wilke — was the man’s girlfriend, but she had just found out he is HIV-positive.
BlueHorse Solutions LLC, confirmed to 12 News that it installed the cameras on the house that captured the footage about a week before the incident in late April. A Maricopa County grand jury indicted Wilke on charges including: attempting to commit second-degree murder, leaving the scene and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Wilke is pleading not guilty. She has a public defender, a court-appointed attorney.
12 News is working to get more details on this wild story and additional video from what happened before the Mustang plowed into the man on the bike.
We will bring that to you tonight on 12 News at 10.
