$5000 Reward Posted for Plumstead Hit and Run Driver Who Killed Bicyclist

The information below is gleaned from an email update posted by Terry Clemons Esq.

With the contribution of $1,000 from the Central Bucks Bicycle Club (CBBC), activists have reached the goal of raising a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the apprehension and conviction of a motorist who killed Queens NY Cyclist John Chapman in Plumstead Township on May 28th.

Others who contributed to the reward included:

  • An 89 year old mother from Bensalem who sent two $20.00 bills with a note stating she recently lost a son to a hit and run driver. From her note, you could tell she really feels the pain the Chapman family is experiencing.
  • A donor who contributed $500.00 on the condition that they remain anonymous. “This is not about publicity – it is about seeing that justice is done”,
  • Over 50 contributors from all over the Delaware Valley and from out-of-state.
250 reward posters were printed and more than 100 posters have been placed along the Route 413 – 611 corridors from Newtown to Revere, across Route 563, along Route 313 to Doylestown, and into Point Pleasant, Center Bridge and New Hope.

If you are interested in helping place reward posters please contact Donna Lee Eller at the offices of Clemons Richter & Reiss, P.C., 107 East Oakland Avenue, Doylestown PA 18901.
