Middlebury Police Log: Cyclist hit by van on Route 7

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury police investigated a reported hit-and-run incident involving a white van that had allegedly struck and injured a cyclist. It occurred at around 9 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 15, on Route 7 South near the town’s Department of Public Works building.

The cyclist told police he’d been riding his bike on the side of the northbound lane of traffic when the van struck him as it was passing a turning U-Haul truck. A passerby saw the injured man and took him to Porter, according to police, who said the cyclist sustained minor injuries to his leg and arm.

There were no surveillance cameras in the area to aid in the investigation, and no other drivers had stopped to provide assistance, according to police.
