Hit-and-Run Driver Identified by Lower Merion Police

Lower Merion police identified a 75-year-old woman they believe is responsible for a hit-and-run accident that injured a Bryn Mawr boy on July 15. According to this article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, the woman responsible is from Villanova, PA. Investigators impounded her gold 2002 Volvo station wagon, which had damage to the windshield on the passenger side.
The woman admitted her role in the auto accident in Pennsylvania when confronted by investigators and told them she thought she had struck a deer.

The 13-year-old boy was riding his bicycle west on New Gulph Road near Morris Road in Villanova when he was struck. After the collision, the driver didn't stop. The boy was air-lifted to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in critical condition with a head injury. He is now recovering at home.

An anonymous tip led detectives to a garage in Villanova where they found the vehicle. The female driver is likely to be charged with causing an accident involving death or personal injury, a third-degree felony, and failure to render aid.

The family of this boy will need the services of an experienced, skilled, and knowledgeable personal injury attorney who will do a thorough investigation. Their attorney should be looking at other causes for this accident like a dangerous intersection, bad brakes, and so on.
