Australian Bicyclist Hurt In Hit-And-Run Accident In Salinas

Comments Off

Salinas, a 22 year old student from Australia is left seriously injured after a hit and run accident this past Monday morning.

According to police reports, the woman was riding her bike, headed northbound on Bardin Road near Sconeberg Parkway, when she was struck from behind by a pickup truck.

Witnesses describe the vehicle as a beige colored GMC or Nissan pickup truck. The driver fled from the scene.

The woman, who was wearing a helmet, suffered a contusion to her left hip and almost severed her left foot.

It’s always hard to hear about hit and run accidents like this. Accidents happen, but its up to the driver who caused the action to right the wrong.

The driver of the pickup truck should have stopped and helped the injured woman. Although she is lucky that her injuries weren’t life threatening, all to often people get left at the scene with injuries that need immediate attention. If you’re involved in accident or witness a hit and run, please stop and help the victim. Its our duty as concerned citizens.

Anyone with information about the accident in Salinas are encouraged to contact Officer Jeff Munoz at (831) 758-7980.
