A hit and run in Bayou St. John resulted in a cyclist sustaining multiple injuries after a driver in a white sedan struck her and then sped off.
Video taken by a neighbor shows the cyclist, identified as Michelle Phillips, riding away from the Mississippi River on Esplanade Avenue. As she traverses Crete Street, a white sedan reaches the intersection and collides with her. A stop sign is present on the Crete intersection.
New Orleans police responded to a call about the accident at 6:09 p.m. Philips was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance and treated for cracked vertebra and ribs. She was released Thursday.
In a separate incident that occurred two weeks prior, Rebekah Abernathy was struck by a driver while also riding a bicycle as she passed Magazine Street in front of the World War II Museum.
