Police Seek Driver Who Hit Cyclist, Fled

Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash in which a cyclist was hit by a pickup truck last month in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Dr. Geren Stone, 35, of Somerville, was cycling to work at Massachusetts General Hospital when he was intentionally hit by the truck, police say.

Stone was riding around 7:15 a.m. on Sept. 29 down Webster Avenue. According to police, the driver honked his horn, yelled at the Stone and hit the handlebar, knocking him down. Stone's arm was injured and required surgery.

Surveillance video shows the driver taking off after clipping Stone.

"Clearly, he expressed his frustration of being behind us, behind delayed by some bikers," said Dr. Stone.

Stone says he's lucky he only suffered a fracture to his left arm, which is now scarred from stitches following his surgery.

He says he often bicycles to work.

Police say they're releasing the video now because they just got the footage from a nearby business.

They describe the truck as an older-model pickup with a large distinctive tool or storage box.

Anyone with information is asked to call (617) 349-3364.
