The collision happened at about 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday at Nanaimo Street and East 24 Avenue, in front of the SkyTrain station, police said. The vehicle reportedly fled north on Nanaimo.

The 39-year-old cyclist was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries.

“The collision occurred at a busy intersection, so we know there are witnesses out there who have not yet spoken with police and may also have dashcam footage that our investigators can use,” Sgt. Aaron Roed said.
