A Dix Hills man was arrested this past weekend after police said he hit a bicyclist while driving and then fled the scene.
Raynard Dashiell was driving a 2011 Honda Ridgeline west on Express Drive North in Dix Hills on Saturday, Sept. 10, when his vehicle hit a male bicyclist at 9:12 a.m. The bicyclist, 58, of Muttontown, was transported by Dix Hills Rescue to Southside Hospital in Bay Shore for treatment of serious injuries.
Dashiell, 54, fled the scene and his vehicle became disabled approximately a quarter mile west of the crash location where he was located by 2nd Precinct officers.
Second Squad detectives charged Dashiell, with leaving the scene of an accident with serious injury. He was held overnight at the 2nd Precinct and is scheduled to appear back at First District Court in Central Islip Sept. 16. His attorney could not be reached for comment.
The vehicle was impounded for a safety check and the investigation is continuing.
