The Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit is investigating a hit-and-run incident in which a 44-year-old woman was struck and seriously injured while cycling on Routes 1 & 9 South in Kearny around this morning, County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said in a statement.

The driver who struck her fled the scene and members of the Kearny Police Department responded to the area, which is near Jacobus Avenue, just before 8 a.m., on reports of a cyclist struck with serious injuries.

The victim, a 44-year-old Harrison woman, was transported to the Jersey City Medical Center, where she is listed in critical but stable condition.

Investigators are seeking the public’s help in locating a vehicle of interest which is described as a container trailer, with a red tractor, that has a business logo or white lettering on the passenger side door, last seen traveling south on Route 440 past Danforth Avenue.

The Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit and Kearny Police Department are actively investigating this incident.
