RALEIGH Police are asking the public to be on the lookout for a 2000-2005 black Chevrolet Impala involved in a hit-and-run around 1 a.m. Sunday.

The Impala struck a bicyclist at the intersection of Hillsborough Street and Ashe Avenue just west of downtown, according to Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue. The car fled the scene and was last seen traveling on Ashe Avenue in the direction of Western Boulevard.

The car should have some minor damage to its right front quarter panel and perhaps the right front door. Also, it may have damage to the right-hand rearview mirror housing or the mirror itself may be missing.

Police ask anyone who has information about the car to contact Raleigh CrimeStoppers at 919-834-4357 or at raleighcrimestoppers.org.
