The Yakima County Sheriff's Office is still looking for a purple or green Toyota 4-Runner that hit a cyclist and then fled the scene of the bike accident
on Wednesday. Eyewitnesses describe the driver of the SUV as a male in his 40s.
The man who was hit by the car while riding his bike, 72-year-old Leslie Ross Bornfleth, suffered multiple fractures from the Washington State bicycle accident
and was treated at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center for his serious injuries.
The WA bike accident
took place on Wide Hollow Road when the bike rider stopped at 101st Avenue and signaled a left turn in broad daylight.
"As many are aware, there are more and more bicyclists on the roadways," Sgt. John Durand told reporters. "Drivers need to be aware of them and should always expect the unexpected. They should slow down and also allow for plenty of room when passing cyclists
so as to not crowd them off the roadway."
