Prince George RCMP is looking for witnesses to a cyclist hit and run that occurred early in the morning on Wednesday, August 3.

Police received a report shortly after 1:00 a.m. of a man yelling for help near the intersection of Ogilvie Street and 5 Avenue. When Frontline police officers arrived at the location they found the victim, who had been riding his bike at the time of the incident, being attended to by paramedics. The 47-year-old man was taken to hospital by ambulance for treatment of his serious, but non-life-threatening, injuries.

Evidence collected from the location indicates a 2008-2010 Ford Focus with an upper level trim package may be involved in the incident. Investigators are looking to speak with witnesses or anyone with dash cam footage that may have captured the event. Additionally, if anyone living in the area has video surveillance facing the street, they can contact police by calling the non-emergency line at 250-561-3300. Please quote file number 2022-27596, states Cpl. Jennifer Cooper, Media Relations Officer for the Prince George RCMP.
