Details on the original incident -
The incident occurred on 10/14/17 at approx. 7:30 PM in the 300 Blk. of Millwood Rd. between Long Ln. and Shultz Rd. in Pequea Twp. Two juvenile males were riding bicycles with inadequate lighting north bound on Millwood Rd. along the roadway. One of the bicyclists was traveling north bound along the north bound shoulder. The second bicyclist was also traveling north bound but in the south bound travel lane. A north bound vehicle swerved around the bicyclist on the right shoulder, but struck the bicyclist which was in the southbound lane. The vehicle initially stopped and the driver gave a blanket to the injured male. The driver then returned to his vehicle and drove away north bound on Millwood Rd. The juvenile suffered serious injuries and was transported by EMS to the hospital.
