Titusville Police looking for man who drove into teenager riding her bike

Titusville Police are looking for the man they say drove into a teenager on her bike Wednesday afternoon and took off. The victim told Fox 35 it all happened so quickly, she didn’t have time to react. 

“He came out of nowhere,” said the victim. “I flew off of my bike. I went over his hood and I guess his windshield and I fell off onto the concrete.”

It happened at the entrance to a Cumberland Farms store on South Hopkins Avenue in Titusville Wednesday afternoon when a Titusville High School student was riding her bike home from school.

Titusville Police say the driver got out of the car, approached the teen, then got back into his car and took off. The girl was on the ground in a daze. 

“I’m scared. I wasn’t sure if anything as broken or not. You fear the worst when you’re in pain.”

Luckily she had no broken bones or concussion, but she did have “a lot of pain obviously. I can’t really move my neck very much. Can’t move my arm very much.”

The crash was so severe, the car not only knocked her off the bike, it broke the seat off the bike too.

The girl is hoping police catch the man who did this.

“I just hope karma gets to him one way or another. You don’t just hit and run. You don’t do that. He needs to pay somewhat for what he’s done.” 

The suspect is described as a white man in his 20’s with a goatee driving a blue car with a white or beige top. If you saw the crash or know who may have done this, call Titusville Police or Crimeline.
