20-year-old charged in cyclist hit-and-run death

PASADENA, TX (KTRK) -- A 20-year-old woman is now charged in the hit-and-run death of a cyclist in Pasadena in September.

Selena Calderon, 20, is charged after the death of Henry James Vickers III on September 27.

Vickers was on his bike just after midnight on September 27, pedaling along Spencer Highway when he was hit by a pick-up truck and killed. The driver didn't stop. Vickers' body was left on the road.

Calderon is now charged with failure to stop and render aid in a crash involving death.

Pasadena police say Calderon and her unidentified passenger contacted them the day after Vickers' death and said they wanted to make a statement. Police say when they came in with their lawyers, they refused to answer questions.

Court documents in this case say the passenger's nephew told police where the suspect vehicle was and that Calderon and the passenger had just left Daddy O's Sports Bar in the 5800 block of Spencer Highway in Pasadena when Calderon allegedly hit and killed Vickers on his bike.

According to a court filing, the suspect's vehicle, a 2008 Ford F-150, had Vickers' blood and hair on the inside and outside of the truck.

Calderon is in jail on $30,000 bond. She's due in court tomorrow.
