(FOX 11 / CNS) Police today were seeking the public's help in locating a driver who left the scene after hitting and seriously injuring a teenage cyclist in Anaheim.

The accident was reported around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday in the 900 block of Harbor Boulevard south of La Palma Avenue, Officer John Roman told a news photographer at the scene.

The victim, a male of between 16 and 18 years old, suffered a major head injury and was taken to a hospital for treatment, Roman said. Video from the scene showed a bicycle with a bent front tire lying next to a puddle of blood in the street.

Harbor Boulevard was closed in both directions south of La Palma to accommodate the crash investigation, Roman said. Witness Angelina Lucero, who had just finished working a shift at
