Patrol Division officers responded to the scene at 3:51 pm on Sunday afternoon after receiving a vehicle/pedestrian collision to find a male and female bicyclist suffering from serious injuries after being struck by a silver 2014 Subaru driven by 60-year-old Vicie Zielinski.

APD reports that “a male juvenile and female juvenile were riding their bikes on the sidewalk of the Old Glenn Highway when a silver 2014 Subaru drove onto the sidewalk as if it were making a lane change.” APD continued, saying that Zielinski accelerated and impacted the bicyclists head-on.

Zielinski remained at the scene, as did witnesses to the incident. Zielinski was administered Standardized Field Sobriety Tests which she failed. As a result, she was arrested on OUI charges. The witnesses all gave statements to the investigators.
