Boy Airlifted After Hit-and-Run Bicycle Accident

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 17, 2011

Law enforcement officials are looking for a green Nissan pickup truck that witnesses saw flee the scene of a bicycle accident that sent a five-year-old boy to the hospital with critical injuries. Bradenton Police say the accident occurred around 7:30 on the evening of March 12 in the 2200 block of Fifth Avenue Drive East. Lt. Bryan Fowler of the Bradenton Police Department said, “The boy was riding his bike in the road when the pickup heading southbound on 22nd Street hit him.” Anyone who witnessed or knows anything about the accident is requested to call the Bradenton Police Department 941-932-9301 or call Crime Stoppers at 866-634-8477.

It is difficult for most of us to understand how a person could strike anyone, much less a child, with his or her vehicle and then flee the scene to avoid responsibility.
