Greenville, NC (November 13, 2020) – Around 7:30 p.m. on Friday night, November 12, a bicycle hit-and-run crash took place in Greenville.
According to police, the accident occurred on South Memorial Drive around the area of Greenville Boulevard and Mall Drive in front of the local Hobby Lobby. A bicyclist was riding in the area when they were suddenly struck by a vehicle. The vehicle involved, identified only as a white or tan four-door passenger vehicle, fled the scene of the accident.
The bicyclist was not identified but was tragically pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
Due to the severity of the collision, all southbound lanes of traffic were blocked in the area for some time. This led to extensive delays until police were able to clear the scene.
