FARMINGTON, Mo. (AP) — More than a month after a bicyclist was struck by a pickup truck in eastern Missouri, authorities are still searching for the driver.
Mahan Deeds of Evansville, Ind., was riding on Route F in St. Francois County on Nov. 10 when he was struck. Authorities believe he was hit by a Ford pickup. The driver fled after striking Deeds.
Deeds was airlifted to a suburban St. Louis hospital, where he was treated for serious injuries.
Brent Hugh, director of the Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation, says the accident happened on a route popular with bicyclists. Anyone with information is asked to contact Highway Patrol Troop C headquarters at 636-300-2800.
