From an email:

Our office represents a bicyclist who was critically injured in a hit-and-run bicycle crash on Friday, July 10, 2020 at about 12:15pm near the intersection of New Hampshire Ave and Quincy St, NW. As a result of the crash, he was knocked unconscious, broke his collarbone, and underwent surgery at Howard University Hospital.

Now that he is out of the hospital and recovering at home, we are trying to identify any witnesses who might have more information about the crash or driver. Would you be willing to post the attached flyer? We are hoping some of your readers might come forward with some information.”
