Hit-and-Run Severely Injures Fort Wayne Bicyclist

Another Indiana bicyclist is the victim of a hit and run. Fort Wayne Police say the incident happened at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Jackson Street around 1:00 a.m. Sunday.

Police say preliminary reports indicated the bicyclist was traveling south when a witness reports a black, possibly Dodge Charger, was going west on Washington Blvd. and struck the bicyclist.

The witnesses told police the black car initially stopped, and a black man in his late 20’s, early 30’s, got out of the car and walked to the bicyclist. The man returned to the car and continued driving on Washington.

Medics transported the victim to a local hospital, where she was last reported to be in life-threatening condition. According to police, alcohol does believe to be a factor in the crash.
