JCC Police: Truck Strikes Cyclist; Driver Flees

Investigators are asking the public’s help in finding the driver involved in a hit-and-run last week.

A man reported to James City County Police he was riding his bicycle northbound along the 2200 block of Jolly Pond Road around 12:45 p.m. Wednesday when a vehicle – described as a light blue Ford Ranger pickup truck from the late 1980s or early ‘90s – struck him from behind.

The cyclist – who suffered a laceration to his left temple and minor scrapes to his hands, arms and legs – was able to retrieve his own cell phone to call 911.

The driver is described as a white male in his 30s with short hair and light facial hair who is about 180 pounds and between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP.
