Atlanta police on Friday released a nine-second video of the red Dodge Nitro suspected of hitting an Atlanta cyclist earlier this week in the Morningside neighborhood.
The surveillance video depicts the vehicle traveling down Flagler Avenue in one direction, and then later a cyclist pedals down the street in the opposite direction with the Dodge Nitro following.
Investigators say following a verbal confrontation, the driver of the vehicle pursued and hit Gregory T. Germani before fleeing early Monday evening in what police are calling an aggravated assault.
Germani, who was reportedly dragged 50 feet by the vehicle, suffered severe injuries and is recovering in the intensive care unit at Grady Hospital.
A Fundly account has been established to increase the Crime Stoppers reward for information leading to an arrest of the suspect. See here to donate to that account.
Investigators, who say the driver is possibly a black male under the age of 30, indicate the vehicle may have front-end damage.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477).
