Troopers search for driver that hit bicyclist in Port Richey

PORT RICHEY — Troopers are searching for the driver of a dark green or turquoise car that critically injured a bicyclist on Monday morning before fleeing the scene.

The crash happened about 9:30 a.m. as Anthony Angelo Georgianna was riding his bicycle south in a crosswalk at Regency Park Boulevard and Fox Hollow Drive. The bike traveled into the path of the car — described as a Pontiac four-door car, possibly a Grand Am — which was heading east on Fox Hollow, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Georgianna, 50, of Holiday, was ejected from the bike and hit the windshield of the car, FHP said. Troopers said the driver stopped, "exclaimed she would return shortly, and left the scene without providing any information or rendering aid as required by Florida law."

Georgianna was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point where he remains in guarded but critical condition.

The driver is described as a white female, about 5 feet 5 inches tall and approximately 23-28 years old with dark hair. She had a boy with her.

The car has damage to the driver's side headlight area and may still have blood on it, said Sgt. Steve Gaskins, FHP spokesman.

Anyone with information may call FHP at (813) 631-4020.
