Philadelphia, PA (May 25, 2022) – A woman on a bicycle was struck and seriously injured in the East Falls area of Philadelphia late Tuesday evening, May 24, per reports from the Philadelphia Police.
A driver hit the woman and then fled the scene, police said. The hit-and-run accident took place just before 10:00 p.m. on Ridge Avenue, close to the intersection with Midvale Avenue. The woman was rushed by ambulance to Temple University Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Police are still searching for the driver who left the scene and did not provide a description of the suspect or their vehicle.
Our sincere thoughts go out to the woman who was injured, as well as to her family. We hope for her full, fast recovery.
Pedestrian Accidents in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
On the streets across our country, pedestrians are very vulnerable and the most susceptible to danger, and this is especially true in cities with a dense population, such as Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. This is due to the fact that they do not possess any kind of protection that would prevent them from sustaining injuries or passing away in the event that they were to be struck by a car.
Throughout the course of 2020, sadly, authorities reported that around 150 pedestrians succumbed to their injuries after Pennsylvania accidents.
