[ARCHIVED] Bicyclist Seriously Injured by Hit and Run Driver

About 8:05 A.M. Wednesday, December 10, 2014, police and medics were dispatched to the area of Brick Kiln Boulevard and Jefferson Avenue to a report of a bicyclist being struck by a car that had left the scene.

The investigation has revealed that the victim, a man appearing to be in his fifties, was riding a bicycle eastbound on the right shoulder of Brick Kiln Boulevard and was wearing a reflective vest when he was struck by an unknown vehicle that did not stop. Medics transported the victim to a local hospital with life threatening injuries.

At this time, the only description of the suspect vehicle is a red “sporty style” two door sedan, possibly a Chevrolet Cavalier or a Pontiac.

Anyone with information is asked to call Newport News Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP. Crime Line callers are reminded that they may remain totally anonymous, are never required to testify in court and could be eligible for a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.
