CRIME STOPPERS CASE 1838

FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 18 2018 
Wichita Police Department

An evening bike ride turned into a nightmare for a west Wichita woman who was hit from behind by a truck, leaving her with serious injuries. The driver sped away and hasn't been seen since.

The accident happened October 3 around 7:45 pm at 151st Street, just north of West Kellogg.

Sydney's head was split open.  She had to have staples and sustained a concussion.  Sydney was thrown into the air, her bike crumpled underneath her, and blood was everywhere.

One witness said after the accident, the driver got out of his truck, looked at Sydney and said, "I'm sorry, I didn't see her" then got back in his truck and drove off.

She was left with serious injuries, and rushed to the hospital. But the hit and run driver is gone.

Witnesses described the driver was in a black truck, and was an older white man, about 5'4", with a long beard. Police say the front of the truck will probably have damage.

Sydney's family is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. Crime Stoppers is also offering a reward of up to $2,500.
