Suffolk County police on Tuesday asked the public's help finding a suspect in a hit-and-run collision in Huntington Station that left a bicyclist seriously injured. The victim in the crash, which took place late last month, is a 47-year-old man whose name was not disclosed by the police.

Detectives said the collision may have damaged the passenger-side headlight and sideview mirror of the vehicle involved, described as a 1996 to 2001 white two-door Jeep Cherokee, police said.

The Jeep and the bicyclist were both headed north on New York Avenue on Aug. 25, a Saturday, at about 4:40 a.m. when they collided just north of Pulaski Road, police said. The driver did not remain at the scene of the accident but continued north on New York Avenue past the Long Island Rail Road station, then turned east on Broadway, police said.

Anyone with information about the crime, or about a Jeep that may have sustained similar damage, is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS.
