A 66-year-old bicyclist is in critical condition at Albany Medical Center after he was struck by a car in Schenectady.

Police responded at 1:31 p.m. to Albany and Hamlin streets for a man struck by a car that was traveling westbound on Albany Street. The cyclist suffered head injuries, said Pat Irwin, the public information officer for Schenectady Police.

He said the driver, a woman who has not been identified, fled the scene. The car was eventually located on Georgetta Dix Plaza, but the driver was not inside. The driver was found a short time later, Irwin said.

The driver is in police custody.

Albany Street in the area of Hamlin Street is shut down to traffic as police work to reconstruct the crash.

The investigation is ongoing, Irwin said.
