Somerset City Attorney Carrie Wiese has released surveillance video that appears to show what had been described as a hit and run accident involving Somerset Mayor Edward Girdler. However… the video doesn’t show an accident… it shows the mayor’s car coming to an abrupt stop as a bicyclists crosses the road… and the bikes away from the intersection. The teenage girl’s family reported that the girl was taken to the hospital by private vehicle and then flown to another hospital with serious injuries. State Police are investigating the incident, and aren’t commenting on the video.
