MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Police have released graphic video of a hit-and-run incident from Saturday morning that left a 22-year-old cyclist fighting for his life. They hope it helps lead to an arrest.

"This is extremely crucial," said Major Clyde Adkison with the Murfreesboro Police Department.

Detectives hope someone recognizes the gold SUV and provides helpful information.

The hit-and-run happened at the intersection of south Rutherford and Mercury Boulevard.  The video from red light cameras shows the SUV plowing into the back of the bicycle. The driver then leaves the cyclist, Donald Faulkner ,in the road bleeding.

"I don't see how they could not know. I don't know how you can hit a cyclist on a bicycle and not know they'd been hit," said Adkison.

The video shows the driver of the SUV never slows and drives away as though nothing happened. Faulkner was taken by emergency medical helicopter to Vanderbilt Medical Center where he remains stable in intensive care.

Detectives ask that anyone who recognizes the SUV contact the Murfreesboro Police Department at 615-849-2670.
