MEDFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Police say a man who drove his car into a New Jersey cyclist had been sending a text message about a drug deal.
Authorities say 42-year-old Lisa Granert of Cherry Hill was riding her bike and wearing a reflective vest in Medford after 6 p.m. Monday night.
Police say 28-year-old Robert Sharrer of Pemberton told them he was texting when his vehicle drifted onto the shoulder and crashed into Granert. Police say she suffered head injuries and was flown to a trauma unit. She was in stable condition Tuesday.
Police say Sharrer's text was about a drug deal.
Authorities say they found unauthorized prescription drugs in Sharrer's car and charged him with drug possession. They say he'll also be charged in the collision. Police did not know whether Sharrer had an attorney.
