Investigators Find Car Possibly Involved in Bucks County Hit-&-Run That Left Cyclist Dead

Police have recovered the Mercedes believed to have been used in the hit-and-run crash that left Kevin Williams dead along Route 13 in Bristol, Pennsylvania.

What to Know

  • Kevin Williams was riding a bike just a block from his Bristol, Pennsylvania home when he was struck and killed.
  • A decorative eagle plate left on Bristol Pike (U.S. Route 13) was a critical clue for investigators.
  • Despite one of the vehicles believed to be involved was found, no one faced charges as of Sunday.

Police in Bucks County believe they have found one of the vehicles involved in possible street racing crash that killed a cyclist riding along a Bucks County road.

Police found the Mercedes in a garage in Levittown Saturday night, Bristol Borough police said. The owner of the car doesn't live in the area.

As of Sunday, no one faced charges in the hit-and-run death of 52-year-old Kevin Williams along Bristol Pike (U.S. Route 13) on Dec. 19. Investigators would examine the Mercedes to confirm it is the one that struck Williams.

Police are looking for the driver who struck and killed a bicyclist in Bristol Borough. NBC10’s Denise Nakano spoke with the victim’s daughter who says he was on his way home from work when he was killed.

A decorative license plate with an eagle emblem and a mangled bicycle marked the scene along Bristol Pike near Corson Street where Williams died around 8 p.m. Tuesday.

A vehicle, believed to be a silver Mercedes Benz AMG, struck him then kept going, police said. Police believe the Mercedes was possibly street racing another car along Route 13 before the wreck.

"I don't understand how you would just leave someone there," Williams' daughter, Brittany Williams, told NBC10. "I don't know what that person was doing or what they were thinking. That you could just hit someone like that and leave them."

Williams lived less than a block away and was riding home from work at the time, Brittany Williams said. She saw the wreckage on Tuesday night but didn't realize her father died in the wreck until Wednesday morning.

"He was right here," she said while in tears. "He was so close to home."

Police believe a Mercedes like this one struck and killed Kevin Williams as he rode his bike along U.S. Route 13 in Bristol on Dec. 19, 2017 and left this eagle plate behind.

Kevin Williams became a grandfather last year and did HVAC work for a company 10 minutes from his home. The deadly crash occurred a block away from where he and his wife raised three children.

"All of this just right before Christmas and it just, like I would just like the person to come forward and just accept what they did," Brittany Williams said.
