On June 25th at about 7:06 pm Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a hit and run involving 3 adult bicyclists.
According to the riders they were outbound on Old Sambro Road in the 1300 block when they were passed by a white van which struck the lead rider who went down. Then one of the other two cyclists ran into the downed bike. None of the cyclists reported any serious injuries.
