CLEVELAND — Cleveland Police are looking for the car involved in a cyclist hit and skip at the intersection of Clifton Avenue and West Boulevard.

Dispatch: 911. What city is your emergency?
Caller: There’s been a girl hit by a car. At the intersection of Clifton and West Boulevard.
Dispatch: Okay. Is that in Cleveland or Lakewood?
Caller: Right on the border of Cleveland and Lakewood.

Police Elizabeth Deering, 30, of Lakewood was biking along Clifton and was going to turn left onto West when she was struck.

“Elizabeth was heading eastbound on Clifton Avenue and a motorist actually hitting westbound turned left into her, striking her. She rolled over the hood of the car, and the motorist actually sped off,” said Jacob VanSickle, with Bike Cleveland.

Deering is in fair condition at MetroHealth.

According to her friends with Bike Cleveland, Deering was on her way to a social bike ride with a group of friends.

“Elizabeth is an avid cyclist. She does a lot of rides through Crank-Set rides. And it’s very unfortunate the circumstances that this happened,” added VanSickle.

Police say they are looking for an older model, 1990’s gold four door sedan with damage to the front or passenger side.

As advocates for safer streets, Bike Cleveland is working with the Police and the community to identify the driver involved.

“I think the big thing to take away from this is for motorists to be aware of cyclists on the road. Pay attention when you are driving. Bicycles are legal vehicles on the road. So, just pay attention and be aware. The fact that Elizabeth was hit is one thing, but the fact that someone just drove away is inhumane,” added VanSickle.
