Bicycle Accident on Highway 101 in Klamath
KLAMATH, Del Norte County (July 18, 2017) – A suspected hit-and-run crash reported Monday night on Highway 101 left a bicyclist badly injured, according to kymkemp.com.
The accident took place just before 9:30 p.m. on Highway 101, also known as Redwood Highway, near the Newton B. Drury Scenic Parkway.
As per the article, a bicycle rider suffered injuries considered as moderate after being struck by a vehicle on the highway. The victim was apparently transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The name and condition of the patient at this time remained unknown.
Meanwhile, the driver involved did not stop to render aid and fled the scene. Authorities described the suspect car as a small black colored sedan with a missing passenger side mirror.
The incident prompted one lane of Highway 101 to be blocked while the officers conducted their investigation.
If a motorist flees the scene after being involved in a traffic collision, it is deemed as a hit-and-run. Based on the report, the driver hit the bicyclist and took off without providing assistance or even a contact information.
