Cecil police looking for hit-and-run driver
Police in Cecil are seeking the public’s help in identifying the driver of a car that failed to stop after striking an off-duty detective who was riding his bike on Wednesday.
Detective Mark Marcucci, 45, was traveling along McConnell Road near the end of a 26-mile ride shortly before 2:30 p.m. when he was hit by a blue Chevy Cobalt. He estimates that the vehicle was traveling about 25 mph, which is the posted speed limit.
“The car’s mirror hit my arm and hip and I spun up in the air and slammed to the ground,” said Marcucci, who suffered a bruised shoulder. He said his injuries did not prevent him from returning to work on Thursday.
A witness wasn’t able to get a license plate number, but said the car had a handicapped placard hanging from the rearview mirror and was driven by an older white man wearing a hat. Police were able to identify the vehicle as a 2006 or 2007 Cobalt from parts of the mirror that broke off the car.
Anyone with information about the hit-and-run accident is asked to call Cecil police Sgt. James Brose at 724-743-0940 Ext. 202.
