Shortly before 10 pm on September 7, Richmond RCMP responded to the intersection of Francis Road and Gilbert Road for reports of a cyclist struck.
The cyclist, a 48-year old man from Richmond, was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Wearing proper safety equipment is a factor in reducing injuries in this incident. The man has since been discharged.
The suspect vehicle is described as a blue SUV and was last seen driving away from the scene, eastbound on Francis Road.
“Police are investigating this collision as a hit and run. The blue SUV is likely to have sustained some damage consistent with colliding with a cyclist. We are asking anyone in the community to contact us if they have any information or dash cam footage regarding this incident. Even the smallest detail could greatly assist us” says Corporal Dennis Hwang.
