CORPUS CHRISTI - Corpus Christi police say a driver hit a bicyclist early this morning in the 7400 block of Ocean Drive and then took off.
Friends of the victim say he was riding in the bike lane on a bright orange bike and obeying all traffic laws when he was hit.
The rider was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
City Councilman Mark Scott, a friend of the bicyclist, was at the scene and was shocked by what happened.
"The guy is trying to ride a nice bike ride, by himself, way inside the white line," said Scott. "This shouldn't happen in any city in America, much less Corpus Christi.
Police say the driver left some evidence behind they believe will help them track him down.
