URBANA – Champaign County sheriff's investigators are looking for help solving a hit-and-run accident involving a bicyclist.
About 9:30 a.m. on Monday, July 6, a 62-year-old Savoy woman was hit as she rode her bike west on County Road 600 N near 950 E, near Tolono. After striking the woman, the vehicle continued traveling west without stopping. The woman was injured and required surgery on her elbow as a result of the accident.
