Just wanted to post this for the community, incase anyone might know anything about it. Long shot of course, but these hit and runs are pretty horrible.

That's terrible.

Any news on whether the biker had the proper lights equipped? Not to blame the victim here, but 2:30 AM seems like a weird time to be out.

Can't tell. Saw a helmet in the debris pile. Lets face it the Jeep drive was drunk. Hit and run? Sure are some cold people in the world to hit someone and just drive off leaving that person for dead. I can't imagine what kind of person could do that. Guess someone that can murder. Sure are all kinds out there. Sad. As far as riding at weird times, I ride at all hours for my work. It is what it is, but when I am riding after midnight, I trust no one at all. I am ready to bail over a curb or whatever needed to get away from all cars and of course if I see an SUV or pickup, I almost bail before they come toward me at all and ride erratically so I am at least seen before I ride inches from the curb or whatever is next to me to give as much room as I can. Hard to blame a cyclist when a murderer runs into you.

No, I wasn't trying to do that. Even if the inital accident was an accident, driving away definitely wasn't. Hope they get 'em.

Well he/she might have been on the way back from work or whatever, yeah; and even if not it's a free country and the person can be out there whenever they like and for whatever reason they like and don't need to explain themselves to ME of all people. I'd just hope that anyone reading this will remember to illuminate themselves if they're out biking after dark.

The not stopping after the accident is the known wrong here (who's fault it was, whether the biker was illuminated, etc etc is all conjecture)

No, no, I agree, I'm sorry that I came across wrong (I was just asking the other question as an aside).

Holy ****. We actually moved the debris of this wrecked bike out of the street at the intersection of Butler & Penn Ave. I'm guessing the bike was dragged down the street by the vehicle? Guess I should mention this to police...

The driver was obviously drunk, IMHO.
