2-year-old dead after speeding car rams 3 bicyclists

A tragic hit-and-run accident that killed two people, including a two-year-old girl, and severely injured another person was caught on CCTV yesterday in Khon Kaen.

The graphic CCTV footage clearly demonstrates how vulnerable people riding bicycles on the side of roads are to speeding drivers.

[WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO: watch here & TV report here]

While the car was traveling at a very high speed, the car hit one bicycle and sent it flying into another bicycle.

The first bicyclist was killed instantly from the impact.

A 2-year-old girl riding on the back of the second bicycle was also killed.

The person pedaling the bicycle was severely injured and sent to the hospital.

HIT-AND-RUN & OPEN CAN OF BEER IN CAR

After the accident, the driver fled from the car and ran into a field on the side of the road, also captured in the CCTV footage.

An open can of beer was found in the beverage holder next to the driver's seat.

CAR OWNER TURNS HIMSELF IN, CLAIMS INNOCENCE

Several hours later, the owner of the car turned himself in to police but claimed that the driver who hit the bicyclists was actually a friend who borrowed the car.

The owner of the car, however, did test positive for drug usage and was arrested under drug charges.

Police are still trying to determine the identity of the hit-and-run driver.
