A March 19, 2010 hit and run in Lower Gwynedd PA resulted in serious injuries to a Montgomery County pedestrian.  There was an argument between 2 groups of students at the Wissahickon High School dance.  As one group left the dance and was walking home, a driver of an automobile apparently intentionally ran them down.  One pedestrian was hit by the car and dragged 30 feet before he fell to the ground and the auto sped away.

The Montco hit and run victim was treated at Abington Memorial Hospital for fractures to his shoulder, arm and leg.  Surgeries were needed which included the installation of rods and plates.  Police recovered the hit & run vehicle in Philadelphia and their investigation is ongoing.
