3 Bicyclists Struck By Distracted Driver in Birmingham Township

On Saturday June 21st three Cyclists were injured, two seriously on Route 100 near Route 52 in front of Brandywine Picnic Park in Birmingham Township. A minivan traveling northbound crossed the yellow line and struck the cyclists going in the opposite direction head on.

The 19 YO driver told one of the victims that he was looking for a bottle that dropped on the floor. As far as we know NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED.

One cyclist suffered multiple lacerations that required surgery. The other cyclist suffered 3 broken ribs, clavicle, scapula, and a torn trachea and is still in the ICU unit a UPenn.

I hope the cyclists and their families pressure the police to file charges for what is clearly reckless endangerment. A civil suit against a 19-year-old won't get any money.
