Hit-run victim, 13, remains in intensive care


A 13-year-old Taneytown bicyclist remained in serious condition yesterday after being struck by a hit-and-run driver Sunday night.

Ralph E. Staub of West Baltimore Street was taken to Gettysburg Hospital before being transferred to the York Hospital intensive care unit, a York spokeswoman said.

Taneytown police said the boy was riding his bike on Courtland Street when he was hit by a car traveling south on George Street about 9:10 p.m.

Investigating officers later arrested a 16-year-old youth at his home and charged him with failure to remain at the scene of an accident that involved personal injury. His name was withheld by police because of his age.
