— The two bicyclists hit by a pickup truck Monday night near Knightdale are still being treated at WakeMed.

Andrea Amezcua and Justin Gailey were struck from behind as they rode along Rolesville Road near its intersection with Todd Road.

Amezcua was listed in fair condition Wednesday evening; Gailey was in good condition.

Jeffrey Lynn Price, 6708 Bethany Church Road in Wendell, was charged with driving while impaired, driving with a revoked license because of a prior DWI and failure to decrease speed to avoid a collision, authorities said.

Price was arrested at his home a short time after the wreck.

State Highway Patrol troopers haven't decided whether to charge him with hit-and-run as well.

Price was released from the Wake County Jail on custody release. His court date is set for Sept. 17.
