A pedestrian on a bicycle was struck by a drunk driver this evening, according to police.

The truck, carrying a boat behind it, struck Glenn "Scott" Westfall, 34, on his bicycle. He was transported to the hospital and is currently listed in critical condition with serious injuries, Breedlove said. He’s expected to require multiple surgeries.

The victim’s wife was riding her bicycle beside him and witnessed the accident. He was dragged about 300 feet.

“The driver of the truck failed his sobriety test and was arrested for driving while drunk.” said Captain Bill Breedlove with the Corpus Christi Police Department.

The driver of the truck was heading north on Roddfield near South Padre Island Drive when the accident occurred.

KII TV News reports that according to court records, that driver, 57 year old Robert Clement has had six prior run-ins with police including three previous DWI arrests.
