A 40-year-old bicyclist was seriously injured late Tuesday night after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver on North Nimitz Highway in Kalihi, Honolulu police said.

At about 10:55 p.m., the man was riding a bicycle in the right westbound lane of the highway when an unknown motorist, also traveling west, hit the bicyclist and drove off, according to a report by the Honolulu Police Department’s Traffic Division.
