WEST GOSHEN – A man riding his bike on Route 3 less than a mile from his home was killed after a car hit him late Wednesday night.

Paul Hally, 35, of West Goshen, was killed about 11:40 p.m. in the 1000 block of West Chester Pike at Chatwood Avenue after a car driven by Mike E. Mark Delguzzo, 24, of Chester Springs hit him, police said.

West Goshen Police Captain Joseph Gleason said Thursday an officer sitting in the area of the accident heard the impact and saw Delguzzo’s vehicle slow to a stop. Hally was hit in the eastbound lane, Gleason said.

Hally, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene, Gleason said.

Gleason said officers are in the process of reconstructing the scene and no charges have been filed against the driver.

“That’s too early to tell. The accident is very preliminary. No charges are pending yet,” Gleason said.

While the accident is still under investigation, police believe Hally was heading home from the West Chester area, Gleason said.

Hally was last seen by his mother about 5 p.m. Wednesday, Gleason said.

Medic 91 assisted on scene.

Mark Delguzzo, age 24, of Chester Springs, PA is the correct name of the person who killed a bicyclist by the name of Paul Hally, age 35, of West Chester on May 27, 2008.

Mark had a blood alcohol level of
.26 which is 3 times the legal limit. Please can you make the changes, so that when someone puts the name Mark Delguzzo on a search engine, it will reflect who really killed the bicyclist by the name of Paul Hally.

The police charges do not reflect that a life was taken. Mark is only getting charged with a DUI and maybe reckless endangerment. His blood alcohol level was .26, and he had other drugs in his system along with an open and almost empty bottle of gin in his vehicle.

Didn't he kill someone? Where is the charge that reflects someones life was taken? A DUI with reckless endangerment is a normal charge for someone caught drinking and driving.

To get a .26 a person around 140 pounds needs to drink about 10 shots in one hour time. One shot leaves a person blood system in one hour. It could of been even higher at the scene before the testing was done at a hospital.

Please make the correction so when someone puts the name Mark Delguzzo on a search engine, his name is connected to this and not someone elses.
Thank you.
