The police chief of Texas' Waller Police Department has admitted that the investigation into a 16-year-old driver crashing into six cyclists has been mishandled. 

The teenage driver collided with six cyclists training for Ironman Texas on September 25, with two of the riders being airlifted to hospital. However, Waller Police Department didn't make an arrest during an initial investigation of the crash - something the police chief has now admitted was a mistake.
