St. Louis Cyclist Injured In Hit-And-Run Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A St. Louis cyclist is recovering after a
hit-and-run accident last month. According to University City Police, a van hit the cyclist
at the intersection of Delmar and 170. University City police officers
reported a green utility van speed through the onramp to I-170 and struck
the eastbound cyclist on Delmar. The cyclist was not at fault because
he had a green light as he rode through the intersection. The driver of
the van drove away from the scene without stopping. The cyclist was seriously
injured and spent five days in the hospital. He was treated for several
broken ribs, a fractured leg, and a collapsed lung. The cyclist said he
typically trained close to six days a week. He will probably not be able
to ride a bike for another six months. The cyclist has suffered serious
damages such as loss of a bicycle, medical bills of over $6,000, and severe
pain and suffering. The investigation continues, and police are still
looking for a green van that was driven by a Caucasian male.
