A friend of a bicyclist who suffered personal injuries in a hit-and-run accident on Youngs Road in Carthage led the North Carolina Highway Patrol to the vehicle involved in the crash after he spotted it being towed on September 30.

 

On September 28, 54-year-old Southern Pines resident Sverre Schiotz was injured when his bicycle was struck by a black Lexus at approximately 4:30 p.m., according to a spokeswoman.

 

According to the report filed by Trooper Ben Brewington, Schiotz was westbound and was struck from behind by the also westbound Lexus. The impact knocked him and the bicycle a distance of 32 feet.

 

According to a spokeswoman, Schiotz’s friend, who was not identified, witnessed the incident. He spotted the Lexus two days later as it was being towed by a wrecker. He then contacted the Highway Patrol.

 

The driver, who was not identified, is expected to be charged.

 

Schiotz received hospital transport after the accident, but his condition was not available.
