    I was also hit by a car in Sunbury while riding my bicycle on December 13th and guess what, the driver took off.

    Luckily for me, I was determined enough to find the person and did exactly that. The driver initially lied about having any knowledge of the incident but after it was explained there was video evidence of the incident, the story changed.

    I get that accidents happen but taking off like a coward is unacceptable. I will be looking for a car that fits this description in order to bring justice to the other person who was struck by some absent minded driver.

    Sunbury drivers, GET WITH THE PROGRAM.
