Hanford police are searching for a pickup driver who struck and seriously injured two bicyclists and then fled Monday night.
A spokesman said the incident took place about 10:30 p.m. as Raymond Garcia and Kristy Navarro were riding BMX-type bikes north on Avenue 10 1/2 near the east curb. The speeding truck was also northbound, heading toward Hanford Armona Road. Garcia was thrown 176 feet. He was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. Navarro, who is seven months pregnant, was taken to Central Valley General Hospital in Hanford. Their conditions were not known as of early Tuesday morning.
The truck is a black Cadillac pickup which police believe has damage to the front bumper and possibly to the passenger side. Anyone with information is asked to contact officer Jeff Davis at 559-585-2540.
