At around 3 p.m. Monday, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of a crash involving a cyclist on Grey Road 1 near Indian Acres Road outside of Owen Sound.

Officers say the driver of the vehicle that hit the cyclist left the scene. Emergency crews arrived and transported the cyclist to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

About half an hour later, OPP received a call about another collision not far from the first on Balmy Beach Road this time involving a stationary vehicle. The driver fled from the area before officer’s arrived. No one was injured during the second incident.
