A gas station's security camera was rolling as a pickup truck driver crashed into a motorcyclist in Harrisburg and then fled the scene, city police said. Investigators have released the video of the
Oct. 6 crash at N. 6th and Reily streets so that someone may recognize the truck involved in the crime.
Police said the 30-year-old motorcyclist was going east on Reily and apparently ran a red light at a high rate of speed before colliding with the front of the pickup as it turned into the gas station lot.
The motorcyclist fell to the pavement and was seriously injured. He was sent to Penn State Hershey Medical Center and treated for a broken nose, ribs and shoulder, police said.
Police said witnesses were able to get a license plate number, but the registered owner denied he owned the truck and said he knew nothing of the crash. Family members also denied any
knowledge of the crash or the truck, according to police. One of the family members later reported that the license plate of the family truck was stolen and the pickup was parked in the Uptown area, but officers who checked on the truck did not find it, police said.
Police said the pickup is possibly an early 1990's Ford. It is brown and had a white cap over the bed and had a number of ladders mounted on the roof of the cap, but police said the
cap and ladders may have been removed. The truck also has damage to the right front section and grill area, and may have been scrapped, police said.
Anyone with information may call (717) 255-3136.
