Medford, NJ Police say a bicyclist was hit by a car on Route 70 while the driver was texting about a drug deal. Robert J. Sharrer, 28, of New Jersey Avenue in Pemberton Township, has been charged with drug possession with the intent to distribute after an undisclosed amount of unauthorized prescription drugs were found in his car Monday, police said. Charges in connection with the collision are pending, police said. Investigators said Sharrer was seen driving a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass erratically on Route 70 West shortly before 6:23 p.m. when his vehicle drifted onto the shoulder and hit bicyclist Lisa Granert, 42, of Elbo Lane in Cherry Hill. Granert was injured and airlifted to Cooper University Hospital in Camden for treatment. Her condition was unavailable Tuesday evening. Advertisement Police said Granert frequently rides her bicycle on Route 70 and was wearing a reflective vest at the time of the accident. Following the accident, Sharrer told police he was "texting" while driving and didn't remember the collision. Further investigation revealed Sharrer's text message concerned the sale of prescription drugs, police said. Sharrer submitted blood samples for testing at Virtua Memorial in Mount Holly and was released after posting undisclosed bail, police said.
