Cyclist Hurt in Hit & Run at King & Dufferin

3 am this morning saw a collision at King & Dufferin that resulted in serious injuries to a cyclist, and the vehicle involved left the scene:

Toronto police are looking for two suspects after a cyclist was seriously injured in a hit and run incident early Friday.

A man on a bicycle was hit by a van near the intersection of King Street and Dufferin Avenue at around 3 a.m., police said. After the collision, the van sped away, they said.

Police did not provide further details.

The cyclist suffered serious head injuries and was taken to St. Michael’s Hospital. His life is not believed to be in danger.

The blue van has damage to the windshield and to its front end, police said. A vehicle matching that description was later spotted by a security guard at an apartment building at 55 Charles Street W. near Bay Street. [CBC news]

Unfortunately, like any news story in the major media that involves cyclists, the comments section on the CBC story has turned into a war of words about drivers vs. cyclists and the law-abiding (or lack of) nature of each.
The discusssion should be focused on finding the individuals who left the scene of the collision, and the well-being of the injured person.
