Bedford Police Seeking Driver in Hit-And-Run Crash That Injured Cyclist

BEDFORD -- Police Chief Robert Bongiorno and Fire Chief David Grunes report that a cyclist was injured following a hit-and-run crash with a vehicle late Tuesday afternoon.

Shortly before 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20, a cyclist traveling on Carlisle Road (Route 225) was struck by a silver hatchback vehicle at the bridge crossing the Carlisle town line. The cyclist, a 63-year-old male from Carlisle, suffered serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital by the Bedford Fire Department.
