MIDLAND - Midland Police need you to be on the lookout for a driver who took out a motorcyclist, then left the scene.

The accident happened on Thursday afternoon on Andrews Highway, near Kansas Street.

Police say the driver of a big dodge pick-up tried to pull across three lanes of traffic and ended up hitting, then running over, a man on a motorcycle.

That man was taken to the hospital, suffering injuries all over his body, but he's expected to recover.

Witnesses told police the truck sped away from the scene.

No one got a good look at the driver, but Police are looking for a newer model, maroon Dodge Pickup, possibly with a crew cab.

The truck has tinted windows and will probably have some damage to the passenger side from where the truck hit the biker.

If you have any information, call Midland Police or CrimeStoppers at 694-TIPS.
