Lancaster Online is reporting today about a Lancaster motorist involved in a collision with a bicyclist who has been charged, police said.
Mario A. Huitzil-Lozano, 25, of the 700 block of East King Street, was driving south in the 400 block of North Prince Street at 11:45 p.m. July 14, city police Lt. Todd Umstead said. A 17-year-old boy was riding his bicycle west in the first block of West Lemon Street.
The bicyclist rode into the intersection despite having a red light, Umstead said.
Huitzil-Lozano's car then struck the bicycle, ejecting the boy from it.
The boy sustained injuries, including a broken leg, a dislocated shoulder, a fractured skull and a concussion, Umstead said. He was taken to Lancaster General Hospital, treated and later released.
Huitzil-Lozano stopped briefly after striking the bike but then drove away, heading south on North Prince Street toward his home, Umstead said.
A community service aide for city police later spotted the suspect car at East King and Lime streets. Police stopped the car in the 500 block of East End Avenue, and Huitzil-Lozano was the driver, Umstead said.
City police charged him with an accident involving personal injury while not properly licensed.
Huitzil-Lozano was arraigned before District Judge Bruce Roth on Aug. 10 and released on $100,000 unsecured bail, Umstead said
