MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A bicyclist who was struck by a hit-and-run driver Saturday night was removed from life support Wednesday, according to her family.

Mai D. Yang and her husband, E Xiong, were hit by a driver on 60th Street North in Oak Park Heights, which is a frontage road along Highway 36.

Xue Xiong, Yang’s brother-in-law, says she was already brain dead when paramedics arrived at the scene.

E Xiong survived, and underwent surgery to have titanium put in his legs. Xue Xiong says he has a long road of recovery ahead.

Yang and Xiong have a 16-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son.

Authorities do not have a suspect in custody. Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact State Patrol Sgt. Eric Zastrow at 651-539-1151 or the Oak Park Heights Police Department at 651-439-4723.
