Vehicle Sought In Fort Pierce Hit-And-Run Crash That Injured Bicyclist
FORT PIERCE, Fla.— A bicyclist is in critical condition after a hit-and-run crash, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
It happened just after dawn.
A pickup truck hit the bicyclist while making a turn onto Avenue D from Angle Road, according to FHP. The truck then fled the scene.
The bicyclist, a 44-year-old man, was taken to Lawnwood Hospital, where he’s currently in critical condition, FHP said. A witness described the truck as a black Dodge pickup truck with big tires and a roll bar in the bed of the truck.
Anyone with information on the truck or the driver’s identity is asked to call FHP by phone.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “A Hit-and-run is one of the worst type of accidents. When that person that fled the scene is caught you have rights that are different then in a regular car crash. Make sure you speak to a licensed professional about your rights”.
