Texting driver arrested after hitting bicyclist
Police say a bicyclist was hit by a car on Route 70 while the driver was texting about a drug deal.
Robert J. Sharrer, 28, of New Jersey Avenue in Pemberton Township, has been charged with drug possession with the intent to distribute after an undisclosed amount of unauthorized prescription drugs were found in his car Monday, police said.
Charges in connection with the collision are pending, police said.
Investigators said Sharrer was seen driving a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass erratically on Route 70 West shortly before 6:23 p.m. when his vehicle drifted onto the shoulder and hit bicyclist Lisa Granert, 42, of Elbo Lane in Cherry Hill.
Granert was injured and airlifted to Cooper University Hospital in Camden for treatment. Her condition was unavailable Tuesday evening.
