Elizabeth English in rehabilitation after the amputation of her right leg at the hip.

On March 29, 2016, Elizabeth English was on her bicycle in the southbound left turn lane on Airport Boulevard in Austin, Texas. As she was waiting to turn eastbound onto East Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Mr. Avila, who was driving a Dodge Ram pickup truck, entered the left turn lane and struck Ms. English.

She became lodged underneath the vehicle and was dragged for approximately .4 miles before finally becoming dislodged. As a result of being struck and dragged by the vehicle, Ms. English has suffered permanent and catastrophic injuries, including amputation of her right leg at the hip.

Avila fled the scene, leaving Ms. English suffering in the road. The following morning, Avila was apprehended by law enforcement and was charged with a 3rd degree felony for failing to stop and render aid. Abraham Watkins is conducting an investigation to determine if Avila was drinking prior to the crash.
