FOLEY, Ala. (WALA) - A 21-year-old Foley man who was riding his bicycle Monday night was struck by a vehicle that left the scene, according to police.

The Foley Police Department said that around 9 p.m. Nicholoas Tomlin, 21, was hit by the vehicle while riding on 9th Avenue between South McKenzie Street and Pine Street. Police said Tomlin was discovered by passing motorists who called 911. Tomlin was airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola where investigators say he underwent surgery Tuesday for a compound fracture to his leg. Tomlin was last reported to be in stable condition. Police want to find whoever hit him.

Police haven’t been able to speak with the victim yet and have little to work with.

“We have no witnesses, have no leads right now,” said Foley PD Lt. Tony Fuqua. “We’re trying to track down any witnesses that may have seen it that we’re not aware of yet or we’re trying to track down anyone that may have any information on the wreck itself.”

Police ask that anyone who can help identify the vehicle that left the scene is asked to call the Foley Police Department at 251-943-4431 to assist with the investigation.
