HONOLULU -

A 33-year-old woman was hospitalized in critical condition Thursday after police say she was hit by a car racing another car and drifting on Tantalus Drive.

The driver, a 20-year-old man, was arrested on a first-degree negligent injury charge, according to police.  The driver was later released pending further investigation, which is routine in these types of cases.

Emergency Medical Services officials say it happened at around 5:30 p.m.

Investigators say the woman was riding her bicycle when she was hit by a Nissan 240 sedan racing and drifting down Tantalus Drive.  Police say the car drifted into the opposite side of the road where the bicyclist was.

Speed and racing were factors in the crash.

A fellow cyclist who witnessed the crash said the cars were racing.  One of them was drifting at the time and hit the woman.  The witness says the woman flew into the air about 20 feet.  The woman appeared to be suffering from a broken left arm and dislocated right leg.  The witness also said there was a large pool of blood on the roadway.  The car had grass and debris under the front bumper and a smashed windshield, according to the witness.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the woman.
