Redwood City cyclist hurt in San Carlos hit-and-run

Police are hoping to find witnesses to a hit-and-run accident that left a Redwood City bicyclist hospitalized with serious injuries.

A white Ford Mustang driving west on Holly Street turned left into a parking lot near Laureola Park shortly after 7 p.m. Monday night, striking a bicyclist who was heading east on Holly. The driver of the car then sped away, according to Sgt. Greg Miller.

The bicyclist, a 46-year-old Redwood City resident, was taken to Stanford Hospital with a collapsed lung, a separated shoulder and a broken rib. He was wearing a helmet and had proper lighting on his bicycle, Miller said.

Police, however, have no further leads on a suspect, Cmdr. Jon Read said.

“We’re asking for the community, if anybody saw anything, to call and let us know,” Read said. The vehicle is a late 1990s or early 2000s Mustang with a black convertible top.

The incident follows on a recent spate of similar accidents in San Carlos, including a vehicle that hit an elderly man riding in a scooter at the corner of Laurel and Brittan avenues last week, Read said. The elderly man wasn’t hurt.

Another cyclist was also hit last week on Skyway Boulevard by a vehicle turning into a parking lot.

The driver didn’t see the cyclist because the sun was in his eyes, Sgt. Mark Robbins said. The cyclist suffered scrapes and bruises.

Anyone with information regarding Monday’s hit-and-run may call the San Carlos Police Department at (650) 802-4277.
