Bicyclist Taken To Hospital After Rupert Road Incident
LIMERICK PA – An unidentified man who police said fell from his bicycle Wednesday (Sept. 30, 2020) shortly before 6:30 p.m., as he tried to avoid hitting or being hit by a vehicle on Rupert Road near its intersection with East High Street in Limerick Township, was taken to Pottstown Hospital complaining of neck pain.
Police indicated earlier reports that the bicyclist had been struck by a vehicle were incorrect. The victim’s name and other information were not immediately available Wednesday night, and his condition Thursday (Oct. 1, 2020) morning was not known.
Both Limerick police, and officers from Lower Pottsgrove responding in mutual aid, were joined at the scene by Goodwill Ambulance, Sanatoga Fire Company volunteers, and members of the Ringing Hill and Sanatoga fire police.
Access to Rupert Road was limited during Limerick’s investigation, causing traffic tie-ups at the busy East High-and-Rupert corner where a steady flow of traffic exits from the Sanatoga interchange of U.S. Route 422. The scene was cleared at around 7 p.m.
