EAST BRIDGEWATER — Chief Scott Allen reports that the East Bridgewater Police Department is investigating a hit and run motor vehicle crash involving a bicyclist that occurred last night. Police are asking for the public’s assistance identifying the car involved.
On Aug. 1, just before 7:30 p.m, officers responded to multiple reports of a crash involving a bicyclist on Washington Street. Upon arrival, police learned that a bicyclist, who was going against traffic, was clipped by the side view mirror of a car traveling northbound on Washington Street.
Police found witnesses tending to the bicyclist, a 17-year-old East Bridgewater resident, who was later transferred to Brockton Hospital with minor injuries.
