    Default Reward fund established to catch hit-and-run driver

    On Feb. 22, two riders were struck and injured (one seriously) by a hit and run driver.
    A reward fund has been established to help find the driver and to assist the seriously injured rider, Lynn Kristianson
    http://www.youcaring.com/other/rewar...-driver/148350
    =======================
    On Saturday February 22, Lynn headed out for a 200k bicycle ride, just as she had on so many days over the last several decades. Within 30 miles of the finish, a man driving a light colored Honda CR-V hit Lynn and her friend Maile. Maile was hit with a glancing blow of the vehicle and her injuries were painful but not serious. Lynn was hit directly and was critically injured.

    The man in the car drove away leaving Lynn and Maile lying in the road.

    Many other wonderful citizens stopped immediately to help and the paramedics from Anne Arundel County and Prince George's County Maryland arrived quickly. Lynn was transported by helicopter to the Shock Trauma unit at UM Baltimore Medical Center where she underwent emergency surgery and was placed on life support. She and the outstanding team of medical professionals have fought hard for her life. The road to recovery will be long.

    Eyewitnesses identified the make of the vehicle (Honda CR-V) and the appearance of the driver. He was a white male between the ages of 50 and 60 with a dark or gray mustache. The police found the side view mirror at the scene, narrowing down the year range for the vehicle to 1997-98 or 2000-2001. But no license plates were seen. There have been many tips and leads and the Anne Arundel County Police have been working diligently to find the driver. But they have still not found him.

    The goal of this campaign is to raise money for a reward for information leading to the capture and prosecution of the driver. We hope that a substantial reward will help to trigger someone's memory of a friend or neighbor who showed up with a damaged CR-V on the night of February 22nd.

    If the reward is not given, the money raised will be used to cover Lynn's medical substantial expenses.

    Lynn is a fixture of the Arlington bicycling community, particularly in leading early morning "Babes on Bikes" rides and crazy long randonneurs. I last rode with her on a great tour of Arlington Christmas lights. Any contribution to this fund would greatly help.

    When this article was posted here, the total was $4,445. Now it's almost $8k, an amazing increase in only a few hours.
