According to the Philadelphia Inquirer - Andre Steed was found lying on the ground at 16th and Locust St and was hit by bicyclist who fled the scene of the crash. The Police came upon the scene found no witnesses and therefore did not open a formal investigation (a scenario that is unimaginable if the victim was in a motor vehicle).
Friends of the victim of put up flyers around the neighborhood and witnesses came forward who stated that he was indeed hit by a bicyclist. The article described the bicyclist as a white man who appeared to be in his early 20s. He was about 5-foot-9, wearing a white hooded sweatshirt with red spots, and rode a white mountain bike.
Regardless of what the vehicle operator is driving they are required to give information to the police and render aid (PA Consolidated Statutes Title 75 § 3744).
Mr. Steed suffered from severe head injuries and now is in an induced coma. We wish him a full recovery.
