The Nelson Police Department is looking for help in solving a hit-and-run near Gyro Park last week.
Last Wednesday at 3:45 p.m., police say a 12-year-old was riding her bicycle near the entrance of the Gyro Park parking lot when she was cut off by an unidentified motorist. The young girl and her riding partner were on their way to Lakeside Park for a soccer game.
“The female cyclist sustained a chipped tooth and minor abrasions to her face,” stated the police release. “Fortunately, she was wearing a helmet and was travelling at a low rate of speed.
Police would like to speak to the driver in this matter or anyone else having relevant information into this investigation.
The vehicle is described as a smaller red automobile similar to but not confirmed to be a Toyota Yaris.
