Rockland County, NY - Two days after a Rockland County bicyclist died in a hit and run accident on a local highway, Ramapo police continue their search for both the vehicle that hit him and its driver.

53 year old William “Matt” George of Pomona was found last night on Route 202 between Spook Rock Road and Old Haverstraw Road. 

George was lying face down on the far side of the guide rail with injuries to his face and body when Ramapo Police arrived on scene at approximately 11 PM.  George was treated at the scene by Rockland Paramedics and transported to Good Samaritan hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

A damaged bicycle found on the side of the roadway presumably belonged to George.  Police said that they believe that the vehicle was traveling southwest on Route 202 at the time of the accident.

Detectives are looking for an early 2000, dark colored Chevrolet, with damage to the front end, the front passenger side or both. Ramapo police believe the vehicle to be a Suburban, possibly blue in color, but said that the vehicle could also be a Tahoe or other type of pick up.

You mean you don't think Monsey has become an urban sprawl, the comment 7 is absolutely true and if you live in Monsey you should take your blinders off or get your head out of the sand. The population growth has overwhelmed all infrastructure which is why many homeowners are buying in chestnut ridge and new city and merely going into Monsey proper when they have no choice.
