A 62-year-old woman was arrested after allegedly hitting and injuring two bicyclists in Minneapolis while driving with a revoked license Saturday night.

The incident happened near the intersection of Broadway and Marshall streets around 10:30 p.m.

Police say Stephanie Smith-El of Minneapolis first ran into two vehicles that were occupied before hitting two bicyclists and then fled from the scene.

The bicyclists, 29-year-old Jason P. Bradley and 28-year-old Kathryn Collena Bradley, both of Minneapolis, were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, according to police.

Jason Bradley was reportedly in serious condition Sunday afternoon. No information was available for Katheryn Bradley's condition.

Officers say Smith-El was found still behind the wheel of her vehicle with the engine running and showed obvious signs of impairment.

She was taken to North Memorial Medical Center and treated for minor injuries before being booked in Hennepin County Jail.

Smith-El is facing felony charges.
