The Colorado State Patrol is asking for assistance from the public in locating a hit and run vehicle involved in a serious bodily injury crash with a cyclist on southbound Highway 119 in the Boulder Falls area shortly after 3:00 p.m. Thursday.

The cyclist was southbound on the shoulder of highway 119 when a vehicle passed it in the same direction and then quickly swerved in front of the cyclist to make a U-turn causing the rider to run into the back of the vehicle seriously injuring him.

The male driver stopped and got out of the vehicle and then quickly returned back to it and drove away from the scene.  The vehicle is described as a white KIA Sol, with Texas plate NPZ 6972.

If anyone has any information about the vehicle or driver they are asked to please contact the Colorado State Patrol Denver Dispatch Center at 303-239-4501.
