The Toronto Police have asked for the public’s assistance identifying and locating a driver and vehicle involved in a dangerous driving investigation that occurred last month.

On Monday, March 18, just after 8:20 pm, police responded to a collision involving a cyclist at the intersection of Edward Street and Bay Street, near Ryerson University.

According to investigators, a man was driving a blue SUV westbound on Edward Street when he became involved in a verbal confrontation with a cyclist.

Police say the suspect then reversed, re-positioned his vehicle and drove toward the cyclist and struck the cyclist and drove over his bicycle.

The motor vehicle then accelerated and fled the scene, and was last seen northbound on Bay Street.
