A Spanaway man is suspected in a hit and run that left a bicyclist in the hospital Wednesday night.

It happened around 10 p.m. on State Route 7 at 52nd Avenue East in Spanaway.

The Washington State Patrol said the 54-year-old was traveling north in a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup when he hit the 43-year-old Eatonville man heading the same direction.

Troopers say the driver left the scene, but was later found at a nearby address. He is under investigation for felony hit and run and vehicular assault.

The bicyclist was taken to St. Joseph Hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

Troopers did not immediately know if drugs or alcohol played a factor in the crash.
