Police say a bicyclist is hospitalized after an incident with a driver in Montgomery County over the weekend. 

The incident happened just before noon on Saturday morning in Poolesville off Old River Road. Police say a group of bikers was riding along the road when a driver of a gold or silver SUV started harassing them. The driver swerved his vehicle and as the cyclist tried to avoid being hit she fell off of her bike. The woman is in serious condition.

“There was no collision but were still investigating the circumstances surrounding that interaction. The law states you’re supposed to give three feet – we need to determine if that was given” said Capt. Tom Jordan, Montgomery County Police Department.

Police are currently searching for the driver – the incident is still under investigation.
