An El Cajon driver struck and critically injured a bicyclist before fleeing the scene late last night, the San Diego Tribune reports. The 47 year old bicyclist was near death on the sidewalk before being taken to the hospital, where he is currently in critical condition. The man’s name has not been released.
Police continue to search for the driver of the dark, possibly maroon, 1990s model General Motors car similar to a Pontiac Grand Am or a Buick.
I wish the injured bicyclist well as recovers from his serious injuries and offer my support to the police department and investigators as they seek out the driver who caused this incident.
In 2007 alone, there were 10,521 bicycle collisions resulting in injuries, according to the Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System.
