The bicyclist, 57-year-old Allen Trowbridge, did not survive.
“The driver struck him down and just left him there to die, they didn’t call for help, they didn’t do anything and it’s just a ridiculous thing. I hope that somebody, anybody that sees that vehicle will call the police and try to help out in some way,” said Trowbridge’s brother Steven.READ MORE: College Grads Having No Problem Finding Work

“The person that did this took an innocent life, somebody too young to go and didn’t deserve to be just run down and left for dead,” he said.
