Acreage Woman Dies After Hit-And-Run While Bicycling

JUNE 16 — An Acreage woman was killed last Sunday morning while biking along the shoulder of the road on Tangerine Blvd. west of 120th Avenue North. According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office report, 40-year-old Katherine Rigby was westbound on Tangerine Blvd. with her son, who was on a separate bicycle on the sidewalk, when a driver in a white or tan Chevrolet Tahoe that was also traveling westbound struck her from behind. Rigby was ejected from the bicycle and came to rest on the grass shoulder on the north side of Tangerine Blvd. According to the report, the vehicle fled the area, but parts of its headlight and grill were recovered at the scene. According to an updated report, an anonymous tip helped the PBSO locate the vehicle that was used in the crash, but no arrests had been made by press time.
