NorCo Police Seek Driver in Bicyclist Hit-And-Run

NORTH COVENTRY PA – A male bicyclist was injured by a hit-and-run driver on Thanksgiving night (Nov. 24, 2022) at about 11:30 p.m. as he was pedaling through the intersection of South Keim Street and East Cedarville Road, the North Coventry Police Department reported. He was transported by Goodwill Ambulance to Pottstown Hospital for treatment, officers said.

The bicyclist was found on the ground when police arrived in response to dispatchers’ calls, but was “conscious and alert,” they reported. He told officers that a gray-colored “sporty” vehicle, possibly a Scion model, struck him and then drove off west on Cedarville Road.

Police immediately began a search for the vehicle involved, but were unable to locate it. Anyone with information about the incident, or who may have exterior video camera footage of the incident or areas near it are asked to contact Ofc. Victoria Hipple at the department by sending an e-mail to vhipple@norcopd.org. Information also can be provided anonymously to the department using its “Submit A Tip” webpage, here.

As of Saturday (Nov. 26) at 5 a.m. there was no report available from police on the extent of bicyclist’s injuries or his current condition.
