NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police released surveillance video Monday of a vehicle believed to be involved in a hit-and-run accident last week that left a bicyclist in critical condition in Harlem.
The accident happened around happened around 10 p.m. Wednesday on West 145th Street near Lenox Avenue.
Police said a 57-year-old man on a bicycle was in the middle of the street trying to cross 145th Street near Lenox Avenue when a red sedan struck him and then drove off, CBS2’s Janelle Burrell reported last week.
“I was driving toward the bridge, then all of a sudden, I see this bike flying in the air and it hit me,” he said. “Broke my windshield and scratched my hood.”
The 57-year-old victim was a familiar face to employees at a local take out restaurant, who were praying for his recovery.
“He comes in every day,” one man said. “He’s a good guy.”
Police are asking anyone who may have seen the red sedan with possible front-end damage on its hood to contact authorities.
