Petaluma police are searching for the driver of a car that struck a cyclist at the corner of East Washington and Lakeville Thursday evening.
The accident occurred around 9:15pm when a car hit the back tire of the bicycle and caused the 23-year-old cyclist to lose control. The car then continued driving, while the cyclist suffered non-life threatening facial injuries.
He was treated at Kaiser in Santa Rosa and released. (He doesn't have insurance, according to the victim's friends.) The suspect vehicle is described as a dark-colored, four-door sedan. Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to contact the Petaluma Police Officer Mario Giomi at 778-4372.
