The French police are still looking for the woman who caused the massive pile-up at last weekend’s Stage 1 of Tour de France.

Now that the dust has settled, the cycling organization is looking to press charges and sue for €15,000 EUR (approximately $17,900 USD) in damages and police are saying she could be facing one year in prison.

It turns out that our mystery sign holder fled the country as soon as the accident occurred and is still at large. Authorities are speculating that she has gone to Germany, and are scouring Facebook for any clues. They’ve also mentioned that anyone with any leads should contact the Finistère Gendarmerie Operational Centre.
