The Portage La Prairie RCMP are investigating a hit and run that seriously injured a cyclist on the Trans-Canada Highway on June 28.
Police say that about two kilometres west of Austin, Man., at around 10 p.m., a 40-year-old male cyclist from Ontario was travelling westbound on the highway when he was struck by the passenger side of a westbound vehicle.
Police say they are looking for a red vehicle, likely a pickup truck, with a broken passenger side headlight.
The cyclist was thrown off his bicycle and landed in the north ditch.
The vehicle did not remain at the scene and the cyclist suffered serious injuries and was taken to Winnipeg Hospital.
