The driver of the black vehicle did not stop after the collision, as is required by law, so police are treating the incident as a hit-and-run. The riders, both of whom were wearing helmets, suffered abrasion from hitting the road but did not require hospitalization for their injuries, according to Greenwood. A passerby called 911 and the riders were treated at the scene by the Oakland Fire Department, he said. Their clothing and bicycles were significantly damaged as a result of the collision, Greenwood said. The riders reported the collision at the Berkeley Police Department Wednesday night and officers began investigating, he said. The investigation includes reviewing the video as well as following up on a number of investigative leads, according to Greenwood. He said police aren’t able to share or confirm specific information about their efforts because of the ongoing and active nature of the investigation.
