VERNON - Police are looking for a driver who struck a cyclist and left him there with a broken leg.

It was 9 p.m. Sunday when a 26-year-old man reported he’d been hit by a car while riding his bike in the 6300 block of Pleasant Valley Road. The man broke his leg and suffered road rash on his arm.

“The victim told the police the vehicle stopped momentarily then drove off. He believes the driver knew they hit someone,” RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk says.

The cyclist didn’t get the plate number, but described the vehicle as an older white Chevy Suburban with square head lights.
