LANCASTER – Lancaster Sheriff’s Station detectives are seeking the public’s help with any information that may lead to the arrest of a driver who fled the scene of a hit-and-run last month involving serious injuries to a 34-year-old bicyclist.
It happened around 8:50 p.m. on Sept. 18 in the intersection of 17th Street East and Lancaster Boulevard, according to a news release from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
Narcy Wells was riding a bicycle northbound on 17th Street East just behind his mother, who uses a motorized wheel chair. As the pair crossed Lancaster Boulevard inside the crosswalk, Wells was struck by a speeding vehicle, according to the news release.
“An unidentified white newer four door sedan (possibly Honda Accord) was traveling westbound on Lancaster Boulevard approaching 17th Street East at a high rate of speed when the car struck the victim. The driver of the white vehicle never stopped to render aid or made any attempt to help the victim,” the news release states.
“There is video surveillance in the area which detectives are currently reviewing,” the news release states.
His current condition was not immediately available Tuesday afternoon, but Wells sustained “serious great bodily injury” in the crash, according to the news release.
Anyone with information on this incident is encouraged to contact Detective Gil Borruel at 661-940-3813.
