Small, grey car said to have struck cyclist at Graham Street and Topaz Avenue on Wednesday morning

The Victoria Police Department is looking for witnesses to a reported hit and run involving a cyclist and a vehicle in the area of Topaz Avenue and Graham Street early Nov. 24.

At 7:45 a.m. Wednesday, officers responded to a report that a cyclist was struck by a small, grey car (possibly with a hatchback), which fled the scene before their arrival. The car, travelling west on Topaz Avenue, reportedly struck the cyclist as they pedaled south on Graham Street, VicPD said in a release. Paramedics transported the cyclist to hospital for treatment of what police called non-life-threatening injuries.
