LaSalle Police are investigating a hit and run.

Police say that just before 9:30pm om Sunday, August 7th, an adult male cyclist was struck by a motor vehicle at the intersection of Huron Church Line Road and St. Francis Street in the Town of LaSalle.

Police say the cyclist travelled on Huron Church through the intersection while walking his small dog. A motor vehicle travelling east on St. Francis, stopped at the stop sign and then proceeded forward while the cyclist was in the intersection, resulting in a collision.

The cyclist and the dog suffered minor injuries and were examined by paramedics and a veterinarian.

The vehicle is described as a dark-coloured SUV – possibly a Porsche. The male driver was described as being in their 30s or 40s, clean cut, and wearing a white shirt and blue pants. There appeared to be a child in the rear seat of the vehicle at the time of the collision. There may be damage to the front driver’s side of the vehicle.

Investigating officers have obtained surveillance video of the incident and are asking any nearby residents to check their surveillance cameras for the above noted time frame for further evidence of this hit and run. Police are working to identify the vehicle and driver.
