Hit and Run Victim's Family Seeking Community's Help
A 30-year-old woman suffered serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle while riding her bike on Spa Road Sunday afternoon.
A 30-year-old woman suffered serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle while riding her bike on Spa Road in front of Annapolis Middle School on Sunday afternoon.
"My sister was flown to Shock Trauma and is going to take months to recuperate," Tim Callinan said. "She has three fractures and she's wearing a full body brace."
Callinan's sister was riding her bike home from work at Wine Sellers of Annapolis on Sunday around 5:30 p.m. A car traveling westbound on Spa Road made a u-turn and struck Callinan's sister head on before speeding off, according to Anne Arundel County police.
She was flown by helicopter to the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, police said.
His sister was supposed to return to Ireland, where the siblings were born, in about two weeks. She had already bought tickets and given notice at her job, but Callinan said the trip has been postponed until she recovers enough to fly.
Callinan said his sister described the vehicle as an older model four-door sedan that is white, grey or silver.
"We are looking for any information," Callinan said. "If you were shopping, playing soccer or driving around Spa Road or Forrest Drive Sunday at 5:30 pm, maybe you saw something that can help us."
