Driver Sought In Hit & Run That Injured 2 Cyclists In Campbell

CAMPBELL (KCBS) — Police in Campbell are seeking additional help from the public, following a hit-and-run crash that injured two bicyclists during a night time bike riding party.

According to police, a 21-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man were riding their bicycles on West Campbell Avenue near San Tomas Expressway around 1 a.m. Saturday morning. Police said they were hit by someone driving a dark-colored Honda.

“We’re actually hoping that someone will be able to provide us with some information that we’ll be able to follow up on a possible location of this car,” said Captain Charlie Adams of the Campbell Police Department.

“We’re following up on tips and that sort of thing. We’ve got a couple that we’re following now that may turn into something or may not. If someone thinks they know something or has some information no matter how small, we would appreciate a call in,” Adams said.

Colin Heyne, deputy director with the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, said safety is a prime concern during these monthly Friday night rides, which involve thousands of cyclists.

“They go to great lengths to have their rides lit up at night, well after rush hour has ended. We have an extensive network of volunteers that ride and try to keep people in line as best as they can,” Heyne said.

One witness reported that they saw the driver of the car turning off their lights while fleeing the scene.
