Erie Bicycle Accident Lawyer : Woman Hurt in Hit & Run Improves

September 15, 2010, ERIE - The young woman injured by a hit and run driver while riding her bicycle is reportedly improving. While she is still in the ICU at Hamot Medical Center, hospital officials have upgraded her condition from critical to serious.

Kristen Cameron, 25, is a graduate student and assistant hockey coach at Mercyhurst College. She was injured when Allen F. Peters, 49, struck her from behind in the 9000 block of Route 19 in Summit Township (See earlier blog entries of 9/13/10 & 9/14/10 ). Mr. Peters left the scene of the Erie bicycle accident without offering assistance or providing information. Mr. Peters is currently in custody at the Erie County Prison and faces 14 charges, including aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence.

Ms. Cameron was wearing a helmet but nevertheless suffered serious injury. The details of her injuries have not been made public but she has reportedly undergone surgery. Fortunately, friends are relaying that her treatment has gone well and there is a note of optimism about her recovery in reports from the hockey team's head coach, Michael Sisti, who said, "Everything according to the doctors is going well...It's such an unfortunate situation that she's out biking, trying to be fit and healthy, and this accident happened. But she's in great hands."

Our thoughts remain with this young woman as well as our hopes for a rapid and complete recovery.
