  • Ontario County sheriff’s deputies have new information that could help determine who struck a bicyclist and left him seriously injured.
    Investigators are looking to speak with the drivers of two separate vehicles that were seen in the area of Town Line Road where Kevin Royston, a 43-year-old Rushville father, was bicycling the early evening of June 5.
    One drove an older model red corvette. The other drove a pickup truck pulling a flatbed-style trailer with a water tank on it.
    Both vehicles were heading westbound on Town Line Road shortly before 7 p.m., when Kevin Royston, 43, was struck. He also was riding westbound.
    A passing motorist found Royston by the side of the road.
    Royston’s leg was broken in four places, and half of his leg amputated, according to his friend, Jim Hogan, who owns Geneva Bikes.
    Hogan and others have offered an $11,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the hit-and-run driver.
    Sheriff’s Investigator Eric Woehr said any information, no matter how inconsequential it may seem, could be helpful in determining who the driver was.
    Also, anyone driving on the road that night is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office.
