Print Article

Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office investigators are asking for the public’s help regarding a hit-and-run collision that left a 28-year-old Coeur d’Alene mom seriously injured.

Elycia M. Coleman was injured just before 6 p.m. Monday when a vehicle collided with her as she rode a bicycle in a crosswalk at Honeysuckle Avenue and Fourth Street.

The vehicle was described by a witness, the woman’s 8-year-old daughter, as a blue passenger car driven by a male. The child told Kootenai County sheriff’s deputies the driver of the blue car looked at both the riders and then drove off westbound on Honeysuckle.

Deputies checked the area, but were unable to locate the vehicle.

Coleman was transported to Kootenai Health for treatment of serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who was in the area at the time of the incident and observed a blue vehicle or witnessed the crash to contact the sheriff’s office at 208-446-1300 or by email at ksco@kcgov.us.

The sheriff’s office is also reminding all drivers to use caution around school zones and at intersections; with school now in session, a large number of kids are walking and on bikes.

Drivers are asked to use caution around school zones and at intersections, and to remember vehicles are required to stop for pedestrians and bicycles that are in crosswalks. Anyone with questions about pedestrian and bicycle laws is advised to contact the sheriff’s office at 208-446-1300.
