A hit-and-run in East Vancouver has left a cyclist with serious injuries, according to police.

The Vancouver Police Department (VPD) says that the collision took place on Tuesday at 8:45 pm, at the intersection of Nanaimo Street and East 24th Avenue.

The cyclist, a 39-year-old male, was taken to the hospital to have his injuries treated.

Thes suspect vehicle failed to remain on scene and reportedly “fled north on Nanaimo street.”

Because the incident took place at a busy intersection, police believe that there are a number of witnesses who saw the collision unfold.

“The collision occurred at a busy intersection so we know there are witnesses out there who have not yet spoken with police and may also have dashcam footage that our investigators can use,” said VPD Sergeant Aaron Roed in an emailed statement.

The suspect vehicle is believed to be a two-door Honda Civic coupe that was made in the early to mid-2000s. It could be beige or silver in colour and it may have damage to the windshield.

Anyone with dashcam footage who was driving in the area, or in the area north of the intersection, around the time of the collision is asked to contact investigators at 604-717-9363.
