UPDATED: Austin’s Reddit Community Working Together To Find Hit-And-Run Bicyclist


UPDATE: The victim in this case has apparently taken to the Reddit post to clear up the matter.

According to a post placed earlier today on the Austin Subreddit (/r/Austin), the wife of Reddit user “Atomshang” was struck by a bicyclist on the UT campus this past Friday. According to the post and the police report, the victim suffered face lacerations and a cracked orbital bone.

This photo was taken at the scene of the crash moments before the alleged perpetrator rode off without giving a statement. It was posted on Reddit earlier today.
