Friends of a local cyclist say he’s recovering in hospital following a hit-and-run incident, Friday.

Members of a Sarnia cyclist group say Allan Ross was struck by a vehicle while riding near Lakeshore and Mandaumin roads around 8:30 p.m. They add he was airlifted to London where he is being treated for injuries that include a fractured pelvis and spinal injuries.

Last month, Ross participated in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer.

A post circulating on social media describes a suspect vehicle as a “white pickup truck with black racing stripes,” but police have not released any information.

In a social media post on Saturday evening, the West Region OPP said police are appealing to witnesses to a hit-and-run that occurred Friday around 11 p.m. at Lakeshore and Mandaumin. No other details were provided.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact 1-888-310-1122.

The Journal has reached out to Lambton OPP for comment.
