SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Authorities are searching for a driver who hit a woman on a bicycle in south St. Louis.

A person driving a red mustang hit a bicycle that Suzzane Dezego was riding on at the intersection of Grand and Magnolia. The driver then took off, police said.  Thousands of people have shared the photo of the car on social media hoping the driver is found.

“I’m overwhelmed, the cycling community is such a close-knit group. The people who have reached out to me and the care and compassion and wanting to help. It’s amazing,” said Dezego.

Dezego was not hurt in the accident but suffered some bruising. She hopes it will make motorists more aware of drivers on the road.
