A Cambridge police officer has been cited in connection with a hit-and-run over the weekend.
Ryan Callinan, 28 from Wilmington, was cited with leaving the scene of a personal injury and operating to endanger following a preliminary investigation into the crash on Feb. 21. Callinan was off duty at the time of the incident.
Just before 8 p.m. Sunday, a 32-year-old woman on her bicycle near Broadway and Portland Street was hit by a car that did not stop. Police said the bicyclist had lights on her bike and was wearing reflective clothing. Witnesses took down the license plate number and contacted police.
Callinan, an Air Force veteran, was placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation. The hit-and-run is being investigated by the District Attorney’s office, State Police and Cambridge Police.
"It’s devastating. Ryan is, by all accounts, a decorated police officer for the short time he’s been with us," said Cambridge Police Supt. Jack Albert. Callinan has been a patrol officer with the Cambridge Police Department since 2011.
The bicyclist was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The victim has since been released from the hospital.
An arraignment date has not been set.
