A California neighborhood well-known for its high number of pedestrians and bicyclists became the scene of a terrifying hit-and-run accident. According to police, a suspected drunk driver hit a man riding a bicycle and then fled the scene, dragging the man for some time. Ultimately, the victim succumbed to the serious injuries that he suffered in the accident.
Witnesses to the wreck told police that two bicyclists were in a designated crosswalk with the right of way when a speeding vehicle struck one of the two cyclists. It has been estimated that the vehicle was going approximately 80 mph, and some witnesses even reported that the driver appeared to accelerate just before the collision. However, the driver never stopped to see if the cyclist was okay or to contact police. Instead, he drove on at roughly the same speed, dragging the victim for several hundred feet along the road.
