  1. The driver came forth after parking his car on emanuel just around the corner from the scene of the accident. I watched it happen and it was clearly the woman on the bikes fault.

  2. I also witnessed the whole thing. I wasn’t in town when it happened, but trust me, I saw the whole thing. It was the woman on the bike’s fault. And I can guarantee that there are 100 people who are willing to come forward to swear that they also saw the whole thing, just like me. The driver didn’t mean to leave the scene of the crime. He just wanted to park his car. He did go back after driving for two blocks to see how the woman was. That’s because he was so concerned for her well being. Such a mench.

  3. #9. Are you still so upset that you couldn’t get into brisk that you want them to look so foolish , so you call yourself brisker dude and make such a smart comment?

  4. Actually it’s the fault of Lakewood township for not installing a light at that dreaded corner. It it the worst/ most dangerous intersection in Lakewood.

  5. Driver was going so fast that it took him or her 2 blocks to stop?
    With sunset at 4:30 here begins all pedestrians accidents, over 100 of them last season. This is not a town of elderly whom after dark warm themselves by the tv and sleep from 7:00 pm to 3:30 am . There are many cyclists and pedestrians out there & drivers may go twice the speed limit with one hand while shouting on the cell phone with other. In this town it’s never te drivers fault as they are always fully protected.

  6. who cares what the bike was for. A person was hit by a vehicle whose driver wasn’t on the phone, didn’t go through a red light and it’s the bikers fault. I saw the whole thing also…………..and to boot taking a nap a the same time

  7. The cyclist is always right. Drivers need to stay aware and keep eyes on the road, I bet if a pedestrian was hit it would be the drivers fault. I’ve had pedestrians dart out in front of me on county line road wearing dark clothing and oblivious to the fact that they are walking into oncoming traffic. Because I an aware of the pedestrians in the area and realize many do not cross at crosswalks just cross wherever they want, I drive with caution. So should everyone else

  8. I’m sorry but did I miss something? Did I read the article to fast? Did someone hit someone else with their vehicle and leave? Shouldn’t they be charged on that alone? Even if they decided to come back, shouldn’t they have stayed in the first place?

  9. There is no reason for the car to continue driving after hitting the bike rider. As shown by the pictures, it was a tremendous impact that would bring any car to a stop. Why keep driving unless you were calling your witnesses or trying to get your story straight before heading back to make sure you didnt kill the person you just hit. (moderated)
