Police are currently seeking the driver of a car that plowed into a cyclist near the intersection of U Street and Vermont Avenue NW on Friday afternoon.

A surveillance camera mounted on local business U Scoot caught the crash as it happened. In the video provided to Borderstan last Friday, a green car can be seen turning left and hitting a cyclist, who is knocked to the ground.

D.C. Police Commander Jacob Kishter confirmed today the car did not stop after striking the cyclist.

The cyclist was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, said D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Oscar Mendez on Friday.

Police did not say whether the cyclist or a witness was able to report the car’s license plate.
