The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office and the Bristol Township Police Department are asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating the hit-and-run driver who struck and killed a 53-year-old bicyclist in the 5500 blocks of Bristol Pike in Bristol Township in the early hours of Tuesday, June 29, 2021.
Daniel Santiago, a Bristol Borough resident, was riding his bicycle on the right lane of the southbound side of Bristol Pike. Santiago is a firefighter and life member of Goodwill Hose Company #3 in Bristol. At about 12:55 a.m., Bucks County Radio dispatchers received a 911 call reporting that a pedestrian was possibly struck.
Township police arrived and located Santiago deceased on the right shoulder of the road, in front of the gravel lot at 5521 Bristol Pike. He was wearing dark clothing. Santiago suffered obvious trauma throughout his body. Next to Santiago, on the adjacent sidewalk, police found a black bicycle, which had obviously been struck by a vehicle and had severe damage to the rear tire and wheel assembly. The complainants did not witness the crash.
Any involved vehicle likely has front-end damage. This investigation is ongoing and anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has any information on the crash is asked to call the Bristol Township Police Sgt. C.J. Winik or Officer Pat Kitchenman at 267-812-3053. Winik can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
