Bicyclists Upset With Yet Another Hit and Run

Updated:
City of Menasha -

Menasha police continue to search for the driver and vehicle involved in a hit and run crash involving a bicyclist on Christmas Eve in the City of Menasha.

Police say the driver of the vehicle hit the bicyclist then drove away without stopping.

The 25 year-old man on the bicycle suffered a severe concussion and was taken to the hospital.  He was hit from behind while riding to a friends house

This incident comes less than a week after police arrested a man in the hit and run crash that killed bicyclist Robert Joosten.

Area bikers say they're shocked to know yet another driver like this is still at large.

"I'm not super surprised that the accident happened, but I am surprised that somebody didn't fess up and say, "Sorry and I'm responsible," said Shannon Glenn of Appleton.

Menasha police say the bike rider and car were heading north on Oneida Street toward Appleton. Though it happened in the dark, police indicated the man's bike did have working lights and reflective gear on the front and back of his bike.

"When you do have a bicyclist that's following the rules, they do have the lights on the bike, front and back and they still get struck... That's kind of the hard pill to swallow for us," Officer Aaron Zemlock, Menasha police said.

While the snow leaves less room between the street and curb, bikers like Shannon Glenn still hope more drivers remain courteous to those on two wheels.

"It makes me angry because you've got a lot of people out there that are going to be relying on bicycle travel. And, cars and people in cars have to be aware of that," he said.
