MDTA POLICE INVESTIGATING

HIT AND RUN CRASH INVOLVING BICYCLIST ON HATEM BRIDGE

Anyone with Information Asked to Call 410-537-1147

 

HAVRE DE GRACE, Md. (February 5, 2024) – Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA) Police Officers are investigating a Sunday evening crash in which a bicyclist was struck on the Thomas J. Hatem Memorial Bridge (US 40) in Harford County.

At 5:57 p.m. on February 4, MDTA Police Officers assigned to the Hatem Bridge Detachment responded to the westbound lanes of the Hatem Bridge for a crash. Responding officers located an adult male bicyclist with non-life-threatening-injuries. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Preliminary information suggests that the bicyclist was in the right lane when he was struck by an older model, dark-colored Ford pickup truck. Investigators believe the involved truck may be missing its passenger-side rearview mirror as a result of the crash. The driver of the striking vehicle did not remain at the scene, and investigators are actively working to locate this vehicle.

This is a developing investigation. Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information on the involved truck is asked to call the MDTA Police at 410-537-1147.

The MDTA Police encourages anyone who plans to cycle across the Hatem Bridge to read the information here before crossing and reminds drivers to Share the Bridge with bicyclists.
