A 27-year-old man from Massachusetts sustained serious injures in a Palm Harbor hit-and-run accident just before 1:50 a.m.

Samuel Welch, from Shrewsbury, MA, was traveling on his bicycle northbound in the bike lane of US Highway 19 south of Alderman Road, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Welch was struck from behind by an unknown vehicle, troopers said.

After hitting Welch, the driver of the vehicle continued traveling northbound on Highway 19, troopers said.
