St. Louis Police Search For Driver of Hit and Run Accident

The St. Louis police are searching for the driver responsible for a hit and run accident that injured a bicyclist. Last Thursday, a woman was traveling on her bicycle, as she did daily when she was struck by a car on South Grand Boulevard in South St. Louis. As the bicyclist traveled northbound, she signaled to enter the left lane to turn onto Magnolia Avenue when she was struck by a red Ford Mustang. The impact of the collision threw her body into the air and she landed on the hood of the Mustang and then rolled onto the pavement. The driver stopped, exited her vehicle and apologized before getting back into her car and fleeing the scene of the accident. Fortunately, the victim survived but has suffered physical and emotional injuries. Authorities are continuing to search for the driver and local security cameras confirmed that the driver was operating a red Ford Mustang. Any individual with information regarding the incident is encouraged to contact the police.

Thousands of individuals are injured and killed in bicycle and pedestrian accidents every year and most of these accidents could have been prevented. While bicyclists and pedestrians are smaller in size compared to motor vehicles, it causes them to be difficult to see. Drivers should always maintain their full attention to their surrounds to avoid an accident from occurring. Unfortunately, numerous drivers operate their vehicles recklessly causing pedestrian and bicycle accidents.
