Bryan Police are investigating two hit-skip accidents that happened recently. The first occured last Wednesday, and involved a 14-year-old girl who was riding to school on her bicycle.
Police report the girl was pedaling west through the north-side cross walk at South Walnut Street and East Maple Street, near the Bryan Mobile Home Court, when she was hit by a dark gray car traveling south on South Walnut Street. She described the driver as “a tall, skinny man.“
The driver stopped and asked if she was alright. The girl said yes, she was, and that she just wanted to go to school.
According to the Bryan Times, the car’s front license plate was stuck in the spokes of the bicycle’s tire. The girl pulled it out and gave it to the driver, who took it and then fled.
Also last Wednesday, police say a man on a Harley Davidson motorcycle on North Union Street was hit by a copper-colored Lincoln Continental as the Lincoln attempted to pass.
The motorcycle was slammed broad-side and knocked to the pavement.
The two drivers reportedly got in to a heated argument, then the driver of the Lincoln took off. He was described as 30 to 50 years old, thin but muscular, 120 to 140 pounds, very tan, with shoulder-length brown hair and a thin beard.
Bryan Police ask anyone with any info on either accident to call them at 419–636-4233.
