SUNNYVALE (KRON) — A bicyclist in Sunnyvale suffered life-threatening injuries after a hit-and-run on Monday morning, Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Capt. Shawn Ahearn said.

A 67-year-old woman was riding her bicycle on East Fremont Avenue east of Sunnyvale-Saratoga Road where a white Acura hit her around 10:30 a.m., Ahearn said.

Officers responded to the scene and spoke with witnesses to the collision, Ahearn said.
