Omaha Police Search For Hit And Run Driver

Omaha Police are asking for the public's help in finding the car and the driver involved in a hit and run crash that critically injured a bicyclist Monday afternoon.

It happened at Parkview Drive and Spaulding Street around 2:40 p.m. Police say witnesses saw light-colored silver 2009 Chrysler Sebring Sedan (pictured) headed south towards Maple Street. Police say 55 year old Amos Reckard was riding his bike when he was struck by the Sebring. The driver then took off.

Reckard, who was not wearing a helmet, suffered head and chest injuries. Police say the car may have possible hood and windshield damage. Richard Blue lives near the neighborhood and tells 6 News speeding vehicles is a problem.

"The people just kind of fly around this curve. You can't see on the other side of the curve they just fly around this curve about 35-40 miles per hour."
