The Calgary Police Service released images from the December hit-and-run of a cyclist in hopes that new information from the public will lead to an arrest.

At 2:15 p.m. on Dec. 15, 2020, a car travelling eastbound on 80 Ave. N.E. hit a 64-year-old cyclist on Saddetowne Circle, near the intersection with 80 Ave. N.E.

Police say the driver of the car that struck the cyclist didn’t stop, and the victim was taken to hospital with serious injuries. He is still recovering months later.

“We firmly believe this vehicle is somewhere in our city and that someone knows its whereabouts. We are calling on the public to come forward with any information about the vehicle or the driver involved in this incident,” says Calgary Police Service Traffic Sgt. Colin Foster.

The suspect vehicle is believed to be a light-coloured two-door Honda Accord from 1998 to 2002. Police believe it had grille and hood damage as a result of the collision, although that may have been repaired by now.

Anyone with information on the collision is asked to call the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234, or to leave a tip anonymously with Crime Stoppers.
