A 48-year-old man encountered a gold Lexus while riding his bike along Avy Avenue in Menlo Park on a sunny Thursday afternoon, that much seems certain.
The nature of the encounter, however, remains under investigation. According to police spokeswoman Nicole Acker, the Lexus may have rear-ended the bicycle around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 20.
But when the rider told the driver -– an elderly woman with a British accent -- that she'd hit him, the woman allegedly responded, "No, I didn't," and drove away.
The bicyclist reported the accident to the police one hour later. He did not get the car's license plate number, and although the police log reports the incident as a hit-and-run with injury, he was physically unharmed.
