BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Police have arrested a man in connection with a hit-and-run incident in south Baltimore on August 21, where several bicyclists riders were injured.
Brian Adams, 32, of Red Lion, Pennsylvania, was arrested on Tuesday in York, Pennsylvania.
Adams was arrested by members of the BPD’s Warrant Task Force and the U.S. Marshals’ Task Force in the 2800 block of Woodmont Drive in York.
The incident took place around 9:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of Eastern Avenue during a community bike ride when a red Ford F-150 struck the bicyclists before fleeing the scene, police said.
The bicyclists were taken to area hospitals with serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries.
Anthony Williams told WJZ he was one of the bicyclists who was struck. He said it was relieving to hear the news of the arrest.
“It’s a bit relieving,” Williams said. “I’ll say to know that we can now move forward.”
Brian Henderson said he watched as the truck was on top of one of his fellow riders.
“It was a lot of sleepless nights this weekend and the last couple of weeks,” Henderson said. “So I think I can probably rest a little bit better tonight.”
“I know that every turn we will be there to make sure justice is served,” he added.
Adams is being held by the York County Police Department and is awaiting extradition. Once he is transported to Baltimore, he will officially be charged with three counts of first-degree attempted murder and three counts of first and second-degree assault.
