A local cyclist, David Gordin, was a victim of a hit-and-run at the corner of Congress and St. Claude on Wednesday at 12:30pm. He was severely injured. He was a hit by a newer American model sedan with fancy custom gold paint job and chrome rims. It's Texas license plate number 355 NVR. If you see this car, please contact the police.
