WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating an early-morning crash after they say an 18-wheeler hit a bicyclist, knocking him to the ground, before driving away.

Dispatchers say just before 7 a.m., they got the call about a hit-and-run crash in the 2800 block of Carolina Beach Rd. near Raleigh St. Wilmington Police say the truck kept driving north on Carolina Beach Rd. after the crash.

Police say witnesses helped the bicyclist, Gilberto Acosta, 36, calling 911 soon after. Acosta was taken to the hospital for injuries, but is expected to be OK, according to police.

Officers are still looking for the 18-wheeler, which they say is described as green with no tags or logos on the body of the truck. Police are asking anyone with information on the crash or the truck driver to call WPD at (910) 343-3609 or text-a-tip to Tip708.
