DENVER — Police in Greeley are looking for the driver of a sedan that hit a bicyclist Thursday and left the scene.

The cyclist, Richard Ziegler, 62, was hit at the intersection of 58th Avenue and 18th Street around 6:40 a.m., said Sgt. Susan West of the Greeley Police Department.

The driver of the sedan left the scene. Zeigler was taken to North Colorado Medical Center with critical injuries, West said.

Police believe the sedan that hit Zeigler is dark colored or black. It may have a spoiler and tinted windows, West said.

“Investigators believe the vehicle and driver may have ties to the Country Club West neighborhood. Damage to the vehicle will most likely be on the front of the suspect’s vehicle,” West said.

Investigators have found video footage from an area business that shows a white pickup truck with a crew cab in the area just before the hit-and-run.

“The pickup was not involved in the accident, but investigators believe the driver may have some information that may be helpful,” West said.

Greeley police ask anyone who may have video recordings in the area or anyone who may have seen something to contact them at 970-350-9600.
