Christchurch Police are appealing for public help in finding the driver of a car involved in a hit and run accident on Bealey Ave this morning.
A 77 year old male cyclist was heading east on Bealey Ave and was struck by a car pulling out of Geraldine Street just after 8am.
The driver did not stop and left the cyclist laying on the road.

The cyclist was wearing a bright orange fleece top with a reflective vest and dark coloured helmet.
