PRINEVILLE, OR -- Prineville Police are looking for a driver who reportedly hit a 17-year-old bicyclist then fled the scene, Tuesday night. The teen says he was biking through the intersection at Third and Main, on a green light, at about 7:30 p.m., when a car struck him from behind, knocking him to the pavement. No one stopped to help the rider, and he reported the crash as soon as he returned home.
The bike was damaged and the teen was treated at the hospital for a concussion and minor skin injuries. Officers are looking for a blue Geo Tracker-type vehicle with a black hard top, similar to the above photo. Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Rob Gray at Prineville Police, 541-447-4168.
