A bicyclist was injured in a hit-and-run accident Saturday morning in Nampa, according to Canyon County Sheriff’s Office.
A driver of a maroon 2004 Ford Freestyle van heading south around 10:15 a.m. reportedly struck a female cyclist, also traveling south, on Happy Valley Road just north of Deer Flat Road, according to a sheriff’s office press release.
The driver did not stop at the scene and kept driving, even with the bicycle still lodged into the front passenger side. The bicycle was later located by a citizen who called it in, according to the release.
The cyclist, who had been wearing a helmet, was transported to the hospital, but her injuries were not life-threatening, according to the release. Her identity has not yet been released.

Now the sheriff’s office is seeking help from the public in identifying the driver of the maroon van. The vehicle had an Idaho license plate that read: 2CEJ151, according to the release.
