The bicyclist involved in the collision has been identified as Michael Wilhelm Breithaupt, age 54, of the 3700 block of East West Highway in Chevy Chase. Mr. Breithaupt remains in critical condition in a local hospital.
The police are seeking help from the public in finding the cyclist’s car. They say it’s likely he parked a black 1991 Jeep somewhere in Montgomery County on Wednesday morning or afternoon. His wife thought he might have parked at Bretton Woods (near the intersection of River Road and Seneca Road) or Poolesville High School, but the police checked those locations. Also, his wife believes he may have ridden in the past with a group known as the Spartans. Contact the police if you have any information that might be helpful.
