Police are still seeking information about a hit-and-run accident that left a cyclist injured and unconscious just before midnight on July 30 on the Mary Hill bypass, just north of Kingsway Avenue in Port Coquitlam.

Coquitlam RCMP spokesperson Const. Michelle Luca said the cyclist, Bruce Rickman, is in stable condition in Royal Columbian Hospital and the investigation is ongoing.

"We are looking for any tips, any bit of information, significant or not, that might help in the investigation," Const. Luca said.

Mounties believe the cyclist was riding east on the shoulder and was hit from behind by a larger Toyota vehicle such as a truck or an SUV. Investigators also found a black plastic passenger-side mirror housing, which they believe may be from the Toyota.

• Anyone with information about the vehicle involved in the collision is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550, quoting file number 2014-21316. Alternatively, you can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477 or online at solvecrime.ca.
