News: Police seek driver in hit-and-run that injured Aurora cyclist
AURORA, CO – The Aurora Police Department is searching for the driver responsible for injuring a cyclist in an October 15 collision and then fleeing the scene, Fox 31 reports.
The crash happened at East Quincy Avenue and South Parker Road, and was filmed by a camera the 59-year-old cyclist was wearing at the time.
According to the footage, a Hummer struck the cyclist and knocked him to the roadway. Its driver stopped and talked to the injured man, who told him that he thought his leg was broken. The driver helped the man to the side of the road, then jumped back into his vehicle and fled the scene.
The cyclist did indeed suffer broken bones, but is currently recovering.
The suspect has been described as a man in his 30s, either white or Hispanic, with several distinctive tattoos on his neck. His vehicle also has a distinguishing feature captured on film: custom wheels with a star at their center.
