Bristol Volunteer Fire Fighter Struck and Killed in Hit-and-Run
A lifetime member of the Bristol Goodwill Hose Company Station 52 was killed in a hit and run accident on Route 13, early Tuesday morning
53 year -old Daniel Santiago was riding his bicycle on Route 13 between Beaver Dam Road and Green Lane when he was struck from behind police say, by an unknown vehicle in Bristol Township.
Santiago was pronounced dead at the scene, said police.
Police say they are still investigating the fatal hit and run and ask anyone with information to contact Sgt C.J. Winik or officer Pat Kitchenman at 267-812-3053.
If you lived in Bristol you often saw Santiago riding his bike throughout the borough, always with a quick joke, followed by a laugh.
Our condolences to his family and fellow firefighters at Station 52.
