A 26-year-old female cyclist is in serious condition after she was struck by a car that fled the scene in Brampton Thursday night. Police say the collision happened just before 10 p.m. at Steeles Avenue and McLaughlin Road. Investigators are looking for a red hatchback they say fled south on McLaughlin, away from the scene.

The woman who was hit by the car was taken to hospital with serious injuries.

McLaughlin was closed from Steeles to Kingknoll Drive for the investigation but has since reopened.
