Florida Highway Patrol looks for hit-and-run driver after Manatee cyclist hurt

A blue Nissan eastbound on State Road 684 in the right lane about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday turned right onto Wildwood Springs Boulevard in Manatee County and failed to slow for a bicyclist, according to Florida Highway Patrol. The 46-year-old male bicyclist told FHP the left front of the vehicle hit him. The driver reportedly stopped to give the cyclist a ride to a church about 200 feet from the point of impact — then left the scene. The cyclist sustained minor injuries, according to FHP.
