Halifax Regional Police is asking for the public’s assistance in locating a vehicle involved in a collision with a cyclist that occurred on June 24 in Dartmouth.
At approximately 4:45 p.m., traffic was backed up southbound on Caledonia Road following a fatal motor vehicle collision that occurred earlier on Main Street. A 58-year-old male cyclist was travelling southbound on Caledonia Road when a vehicle travelling in the same direction turned right in a parking lot at 30 Caledonia Road and collided with the cyclist. The cyclist was thrown from his bicycle and landed on the pavement. The driver of the vehicle stopped and rendered assistance to the cyclist but left without providing his information as the cyclist advised that he was not injured. The cyclist later went to the hospital where it was determined he was suffering from serious but non-life threatening injuries. He then called police to report the incident.
The vehicle is described as an older model silver Pontiac car, with two doors. The driver is described as a white man in his late 20’s, 5’9”, 170 lbs., with a light brown beard. At the time of the collision, he was wearing a red and white ball cap.
