The Asheville Police Dept. (AVLPD) seeks the community help in finding the motorist of a tan Toyota SUV who was involved in a hit and run on the the River Arts District (RAD) on Tuesday, Nov. 29th on Depot St. If you have any information on the motorist and/or witnessed the collision please contact AVLPD at 828 525 1110.
The cyclist who was hit is a 15 year old high school student who rides his bike from Asheville High to the RAD for art classes. Allegedly, the motorist feigned calling the police, reported to the minor that the police wouldn’t attend to the scene, and then drove away leaving the minor alone.
In order to support AVLPD in contacting the motorist please share Asheville Citizen Times’ “Police search for driver in RAD hit and run with cyclist.” on your social media and share the story with your circles.
Let’s continue to work together to improve conditions for all people traveling by all modes in our community.
