HOUSTON (KIAH) — A bicyclist is in critical condition after a hit-and-run crash happened near downtown Houston.

It happened around 9 p.m. Sunday night, when a man was riding his bike heading towards Houston Ave and Winter Street in a well-lit area was struck by a white sedan. The bicyclist went flying into the air, while the car left the scene after the crash.

Police said the man was transported to a nearby trauma center severely injured. They also said the bicyclist had ample lighting on his bike and should have been easy to see by the driver.
