Two Hit and Runs Overnight - Technology May Help Find Offenders

A bicyclist was hit at Broad and Federal by an Olde City Taxi who fled the scene. The report on Fox 29 indicates that GPS devices installed on all medallian cabs may help catch the offending driver. Heavy rain at the time (1AM) may have been a factor.

At about the same time a pedestrian was struck crossing Roosevelt Blvd at Rhawn St in Northeast Philadelpia. Police are hoping that Red Light cameras at the intersection will lead them to a suspect.

Evan Kelley, 21, suffered a broken fibula and tibia when he was struck by a car that immediately fled the scene last weekend.

Beef & Beer to benefit Evan and assist with hospital bills will take place this Friday, June 19, at Cafe Estelle (444 N. 4th St.). $20 for all you can eat beef brisket sammies and local draft beer. Here is my post on the benefit, please repost if you can. Thank you.
