PORT ORCHARD — A bicyclist riding along SE Sedgwick Road near the Southworth Ferry Terminal in the early morning hours Aug. 14 was struck and critically injured by an apparent hit-and-run motorist.
Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson said a deputy arrived at the scene at 5:08 a.m. to attend to the victim. He was reported to be face down and non-responsive. The incident was reported at 4:55 a.m., Wilson said.
The victim, as yet unidentified, was transported by a South Kitsap Fire and Rescue unit to a nearby hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately known.
The sheriff’s office spokesman said the Washington State Patrol is handling the incident investigation since SE Sedgwick Road is a state highway.
