LITTLETON, Colo. — The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) issued a Medina Alert on Sunday for a driver accused of hitting a bicyclist while eluding police.

Officers with the Littleton Police Department tried to stop the driver on Sunday around 9:15 a.m. near South Broadway and Belleview. The driver did not stop and drove toward incoming traffic, police said, before hitting a bicyclist, seriously injuring them.

The driver did not stop. The bicyclist was transported to a hospital and is stable, CBI said.

According to a Medina Alert issued by the CBI, the driver was in a maroon 2005 to 2010 Honda Odyssey. It had a temporary Colorado license plate that included 849. CBI initially identified the vehicle as a 2003 to 2008 Mazda MPV minivan.

The vehicle has a broken windshield, a broken rear window that's covered (possibly with black or dark spray-painted wood) and front-end damage. Three of the wheels are missing hubcaps. The vehicle also has a sticker in the upper driver's side corner of the windshield.

Anybody who sees this vehicle or knows the driver is asked to call 911 or the Littleton Police Department at 303-794-1551.
