Police Need Your Help Looking for a Hit and Run Driver in SW Philadelphia

The Philadelphia Police are looking for the driver who struck and killed a 32 year-old man who was attempting to repair his disabled bicycle on Kingsessing Ave in Southwest Philadelphia.

This tragedy is the latest of several this winter where vulnerable road users have been struck in the roadway. Snow is piled up in the parking lane and it is likely that the victim might have chosen to fix his bike on the sidewalk or in the parking lane if he was able to get over there easily.

The vehicle is described as a dark colored Jeep Cherokee. It is very likely that there was front end damage to the vehicle. If you have any information please contact the Philadelphia Police Department at 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text PPDTIP (773847).
