Tucson hit-and-run victim seeks help from community
A cyclist seriously injured in a hit and run on Thursday is seeking witnesses or help finding the driver of the truck that hit him.
Justin Donaldson wrote in an email that he was riding north on the Fourth Avenue bicycle boulevard just south of Speedway Boulevard when a newer model white van, possibly a Ford, towing a white trailer sped up to get around him and then attempted to pull into the right hand turn lane.
Donaldson said when the driver pulled into the turn lane, the trailer struck him and launched him and his bike to the side of the road.
He said trailer sped off eastbound on Speedway.
His bike was totaled and Donaldson was seriously injured. He said his shoulder was dislocated and he spent three
days hours in the hospital. His shoulder will likely need surgery as well.
A driver in the area saw the hit and run, but did not get a license plate number.
Donaldson is hoping to get the word out among the cycling community to keep their eyes open for the van and trailer. If you spot it, you can reach him via email.
