PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A bicyclist was injured by a hit-and-run driver and taken to the hospital in southeast Portland early Monday morning.

Emergency crews responded to Southeast 43rd and Powell Boulevard just after midnight.

The bicyclist appeared to be badly scraped up and the bicyclist’s head was secured by paramedics before being loaded into an ambulance and taken to the hospital. 

Police later said the bicyclist sustained non-life-threatening injuries. 

Investigators said the driver who hit the bicyclist left the scene and has not been located. There is no description available of the suspect vehicle at this time, according to officers. 

Other bicyclists told FOX 12 the intersection where the crash occurred can be tricky, even in broad daylight, because the two sides of 43rd Avenue don’t line up.
