A Columbus Dispatch business reporter and avid bicyclist was struck and injured by a car Sunday while riding.
Jim Woods and Kathy Lynn Gray of the Dispatch write, “Steve Wartenberg, 55, was in critical condition in intensive care last night at OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital with multiple broken bones.
“Wartenberg was hit about 11:44 a.m. on McCoy Road near Kenny Road. He hit the windshield of the car before landing on the pavement. His helmet and bicycle were in pieces, said his wife, Susan Cunningham.
“‘I’m sure his helmet saved his life,’ she said.
“Upper Arlington Police Sgt. Glenn Willer said Wartenberg was eastbound on McCoy Road when he was struck from behind just west of Kenny Road by a vehicle driven by Andrew Scott Inglis, who also was eastbound on McCoy.
“Willer said Inglis, 30, fled the scene and was captured a few minutes later. He has been cited for drunken driving, failing to keep an assured clear distance and fleeing the scene, Willer said.”
