The hit-and-run crash in the 3700 block of Midway Drive happened shortly before 11 p.m. Monday, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.

The man was riding his bicycle northbound when a silver Mercedes or Lexus sedan with dark trim, also traveling northbound, rear-ended with man for unknown reasons, Delimitros said in a statement.

“The sedan did not stop but continued northbound on Midway Drive,” he said, adding the bicyclist suffered a head injury and dislocated shoulder. He was expected to survive.
