A cyclist is suffering from minor injuries after a hit-and-run incident in Salmon Arm.

On April 12, between 7:30 and 7:40 a.m., a male cyclist riding to work was clipped by a small white car at the intersection of 11th Avenue NE and 22nd Street NE, said Staff Sgt. Scott West in a Salmon Arm RCMP media release.

The cyclist said he was clipped by the car and knocked off his bicycle. Police report the cyclist received minor scrapes on his hands and knees from hitting the pavement, and the driver did not stop after the collision.

Police are investigating the incident and looking for witnesses or independent video evidence of the hit-and-run.

Anyone who was in the area or may have information are asked to call the Salmon Arm RCMP at 250-832-6044.

West cautioned drivers to be extra cautious and to yield to the more economic modes of transportation sharing the roads, such as bicycles.
