MASON CITY (AP) -  A 91-year-old Mason City woman accused of hitting a bicyclist with her car has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

   The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that the incident happened Friday afternoon. Police investigators say Patricia Fullerton was driving west on a city street shortly before 3 p.m. and attempting to turn south when she struck 54-year-old Terrie Eliason's bicycle.

   Police Lt. Logan Wernet says Fullerton saw Eliason get up, thought she wasn't injured and drove home.

   An ambulance was called to the scene, but Eliason was not taken to the hospital.

   Fullerton has also been charged with failure to yield right of way on a left turn.

   Fullerton did not immediately return a message left Saturday at her home seeking comment.
