Belmont police are seeking to identify the driver of this rental vehicle in connection with a hit-and-run collision in their city on Saturday, Nov. 28.

The bicyclist was struck in the intersection of Old County Road and Masonic Way just after 1 p.m. The bicyclist was treated at a local trauma center and released the same day, police said.

The suspect vehicle, a dark blue Chevrolet Malibu, fled the scene northbound on Old County Road, and witnesses reported seeing it driving erratically before and after the collision, police said.
