Bicyclist Struck by Hit-and-Run Driver in University City

Police are searching for the driver of a minivan who struck a bicyclist in University City Wednesday night and then fled the scene.

Police say a former Drexel University student was riding his bike on 33rd and Powelton streets when he was struck by a red or Burgundy Ford minivan. The driver of the van did not stop and instead continued north towards 35th Street, police said.

The victim was not seriously injured during the crash and was able to ride away on his own after being checked out by responding medics.

Police say the hit-and-run vehicle had the partial tag "YBZ." They continue to investigate.
