Green Ride "Hit & Run" Victim

These are two follow-ups to two separate Hit & Run incidents.

1) Race St  on March 19, 2010 [Green Ride]

2) Hwy 9 on April 8, 2009 [“PLEA date” is Friday, May 7th, 2-4pm]


This incident occurred on Race St on Friday, March 19th. The fact that this happened on the ride where we were honoring Joshua Ryan West who was killed by a driver on Feb. 1, 2010 is especially ironic.
