This is an attempted hit and run accident that occurred on the Fahy Bridge in Bethlehem, PA on 4/2/12. The offending driver, a juvenile, attempted to pass a bus on the left and struck a bicyclist from behind. As the driver fled the scene, the bus driver blocked the bridge to prevent the person from fleeing. Another citizen also blocked the offending car’s path. The driver was taken into custody and charged with multiple offenses, including Pennsylania’s latest law to protect cyclists that went into effect on this day.
This was not just an “attempted hit and run” — the juvenile actually succeeded in the hit and run — they just got caught before the got too far away! Thanks for posting!
