PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Two doctors from Children’s Hospital were injured in a hit-and-run accident in Highland Park.

The accident happened when a group of three cyclists around 7:45 a.m. Monday on Washington Boulevard.

Bob Henke was the only one out of the group not hit.

“Some car came around behind another car and passed them, took a right and took out the front wheel of the lead rider, consequently taking out the second guy,” he said.

Henke says the accident didn’t have to happen.

“It’s just a driver in a hurry,” he added. “He had to go around two other cars and three cyclists to try and turn into a place he had no business trying to get to.”

Dr. Jonathan Finder, Children’s Hospital pulmonologist, has a broken jaw and a concussion. Dr. Robert Noll, a PhD researcher at Children’s Hospital, has a broken pelvis, broken bones and other internal injuries.

Pittsburgh Police say they want to hear from anyone who witnessed the accident. The car who hit the doctors is believed to be a gold sedan that has some front end damage.
