The injured bicyclist had scrapes to his back. His bike, his helmet and his clothes were all damaged. The driver didn’t stop, but instead took off down the road.
The driver is described as “a white male in his 40s, with dark blond, shoulder-length hair. He was reportedly driving an older model, four-door, black Chevy truck.”
