Police are searching for a driver who hit a bicyclist and then left after taking the victim to a nearby bar.

Officers at the scene said the driver was traveling along the 100 block of Probandt around 9:30 p.m. Friday, when he struck a woman on a bicycle. The man stopped, picked up the woman and took her to the La Tuna Bar across the street. He then picked up her bike and strapped it onto the roof rack of her car and left.

Someone at the bar called EMS. The victim, who did not remember getting hit, was taken to Downtown Baptist Hospital for observation.
