A hit and run in Revere, Massachusetts occurred early Sunday morning, leaving the bicyclist with severe injuries. Revere police were dispatched to the scene at around 2:30 am. The crash took place at Revere Beach Parkway. Upon arrival on scene, officers located the bicyclist in the roadway. The bicycle itself was found lodged underneath the frame of the vehicle. The driver, however, had fled the scene by the time that police showed up.
Police later located the drier about a mile away in Chelsea. He was immediately taken into custody on charges related to the crash. The bicyclist suffered severe injuries in the crash and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. Although the injuries are described as serious, there is no further word on the extent of injuries or whether they are life-threatening. The identities of those involved have not been released at this time.
