A man riding his bicycle was seriously injured in Bed-Stuy after a hit-and-run. 



It happened Thursday around 10 p.m. at the intersection of Fulton Street and Tompkins Avenue. 



Police say they responded to the report of a man down and found a 43-year-old man lying injured in the middle of the street. He was rushed to Kings County Hospital with head injuries and was listed in critical condition. 



Police say a black colored Jeep was reported leaving the scene.
