L. MACUNGIE TWP., Pa. - Police said a Lehigh County bicyclist failed to yield at a stop sign, when he was hit by a car late last month.

The crash occurred about 7:15 p.m. Sept. 26 at the intersection of Grange Road and Hamilton Boulevard in Lower Macungie Township. Pennsylvania State Police report that Michael L. Williams, of Wescosville, was biking south on Grange Road, when he failed to stop at Hamilton Boulevard, according to a police report issued Friday.
