SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Police released new video from a hit-and-run on a Middletown street Friday that left a 66-year-old bicyclist seriously hurt.

Police said the victim was riding near the intersection of India and West Washington streets about 1:30 p.m. when he was hit by a blue or gray 2005 Dodge Caravan with Georgia license number RRJ7004. The vehicle may have a shattered windshield, according to San Diego police.

Following the collision, the driver of the minivan fled, possibly back toward Interstate 5, police said.

Paramedics took the victim to a hospital for treatment of a life- threatening head injury, police said.
