Cyclist hit and run in shady Canyon

Newport Beach City Councilwoman Leslie Daigle was hospitalized Thursday following a serious head-on crash with another cyclist on the shady Canyon bike path in Irvine. She had just turned around after doing an early morning training ride called "Coffee Crew" and was preparing to transition back to the roadway when another cyclist heading the opposite direction hit her head on, then fled the scene, she said. The crash occurred about 7:30 a.m., she said. The other cyclist was reported to be wearing black shorts and a green jerser. “Somebody came from the roadway really fast,” she said. “It was head on, bike-on-bike.” Anyone who witnessed the collision or has any information please call at 714-497-0633, or the Irvine police department.
