SHENANDOAH, Iowa (AP) -- Police have charged a pickup truck driver with hitting and seriously injuring a Florida bicyclist who was camping after riding in Iowa.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/2aG5DOK ) 55-year-old Danny Cardin, of Homer, Louisiana, was charged with serious injury by vehicle and leaving the scene of a serious injury accident after police were called to a campground in Shenandoah late Sunday.

The Iowa State Patrol says Cardin's pickup struck a tent, dragging 67-year-old James Foley, who was inside.

Foley, of Jacksonville, Florida, was flown to a hospital in Omaha, Nebraska.

The injury followed the death of another rider Sunday morning on the first day of statewide biking event, known as RAGBRAI.

Cardin was in the Fremont County jail Monday. Court records don't indicate if he has a lawyer.
