The two bicyclist were taken to area hospitals with serious, but non-life threatening, injuries.
Kenneth Pittrel was one of the cyclists hit. He said the truck was driving erratically, weaving in and out of traffic and doing burnouts, filling the road with smoke.
“As we cut through the smoke, I saw that he was sitting there with a grin on his face like he was entertained with causing all of this disruption with the ride,” Pittrel told WJZ.
Brian Henderson witnessed the ordeal, and recalled the truck running over the cyclists.READ MORE: COVID-19 In Maryland: Over 1.4K New Cases Reported, 11 New Deaths
“He couldn’t initially clear him,” Henderson said. “It was like watching a pickup go into four-wheel. Boom, boom, boom. And when it went up, the wheels spin, the back wheel came, and I mean, he’s screaming already.”
Pittrel, who suffered ligament damage is in the process of recovering.
“It’s a life changing experience,” he said. “I think I’ll be ok. I’ll get through it, but I don’t want anyone else to go through what I went through in that situation. I just want to bring this guy to justice.”
Adams, of Red Lion, Pennsylvania, is being charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder and three counts of first and second degree assault.
