A young lady was travelling east on her bike in the Somerset Village this afternoon, when another person on a bike struck her while making a U-turn, resulting in her flying over a wall. In the second hit and run accident within two days, they immediately fled the scene without checking on the young lady’s condition.
She is still alive, but according to her mother (whom TNN has decided to keep anonymous), indicated she has a broken hip, broken femur, broken fibula, broken knee and shattered ankle. The mother urges the rider in question to come clean, have a heart and turn yourself in; or for anyone who may know the rider or may have witnessed the accident to also come clean.
“ You should not be hitting someone with your vehicle and leaving them for dead,” she said. “ [My daughter] could have been [the rider’s] cousin, sister, or somebody that they knew, but they left her [injured] without even checking.”
She feels that one reason why people might not stop after an accident is because they’re afraid of getting in trouble for possibly causing the accident, not having a valid license, motorcycle may not be license and insured, etc.
“It is sad that a similar accident occurred not too long ago with someone else’s child who is no longer here,” she said.
The young lady did not get too much of a description of the motorist in question, but it was definitely a solo male rider and he “ may have had dreadlocks.”
