Bicyclist critically injured by hit-and-run driver

At about 4:50 AM today on Old Hickory Blvd in Lakewood, the driver of a light-colored full size pickup truck critically injured a bicyclist, then fled the scene.  The 53-year-old bicyclist, Roman Alvarez of Madison, is in critical condition at Skyline Medical Center.  Alvarez was even doing everything right, and then some: bright orange vest, rear-facing lights, reflectors, helmet, and riding close to the right side of the road (which, with caveats, is part of bicycle law in Tennessee).

Police are seeking the public’s help in finding the truck, which may have body damage, and its hit-and-run driver.
