“I actually was dragged about 15 feet before he sped off down 16th.”

“Dear PoPville,

On Thursday morning (the 17th) at about 8:40am I was on my bike in Mount Pleasant on Irving Street just before (west of) 16th Street when I was hit by a car. It was a silver late-model smallish Ford, like an Escort or Focus, with Maryland plates. I actually was dragged about 15 feet before he sped off down 16th. Luckily I escaped with just a fractured collarbone and a bunch of scrapes to my leg and helmet… my bike didn’t fare as well.

Did anybody see this? I stupidly left the scene running to try and get his plate number (you can do anything on adrenalin). I should have just stayed there and talked to witnesses. If you saw this, please get in contact with me! I’ve filed a police report, but they don’t have much to go on at this point.

Thanks everyone!”
