GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Grand Rapids police are investigating a hit-and-run crash that left a bicyclist with serious injuries.

The collision happened late Tuesday night, around 10:45 p.m., in the intersection of Madison Avenue SE and Prince Street SE, according to a release from the Grand Rapids Police Department.

A blue GMC Terrain that was headed north on Madison Avenue hit the bicyclist, 39-year-old Roderick Davis of Grand Rapids, who was trying to cross Madison while heading west on Prince Street, police said.

The driver took off from the scene, but later came back to talk to officers who were investigating the hit-and-run, police said. Police aren’t releasing that person’s name as they are still investigating the crash.

Davis received a serious head injury and broken bones in the wreck, police said. He is currently in critical but stable condition at an area hospital.

Investigators said they didn’t think alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.

Anyone with information should call Grand Rapids police at 616.456.4282 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
