Police in Halifax are looking for a white van after it struck a cyclist and downed two more riders on the Old Sambro Road on Tuesday night.

It happened just after 7 p.m. on the 1300 block of the Old Sambro Road.

Police say the van's driver might not be aware the lead cyclist was hit.

It's described as a white panel van with no rear windows and a roof rack on the top.

No one was seriously hurt.
