HALIFAX—Police are looking for the driver of an SUV who they allege took off after crashing into a Halifax cyclist.

Halifax Regional Police say the collision happened at 6:40 a.m. Tuesday on Quinpool Road near Connaught Avenue.

“The bicycle and vehicle were travelling eastbound on Quinpool Road when the vehicle struck the bicycle from behind,” a police statement said on Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the driver stopped and talked to the cyclist, but didn’t help or provide any of her personal information.

The cyclist suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was later taken to hospital by paramedics.

Police describe the driver as a white woman in her mid-to-late 30s, and about five feet ten inches tall. She was driving a dark green BMW SUV with a Nova Scotia licence plate that police say may have begun with FVP.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked contact police or Crime Stoppers.
