A southern Alberta man is facing charges in relation to a hit and run on the Trans-Canada Highway last week.

On the evening of July 8th, a westbound cyclist was hit by a vehicle and left on the side of the road until another motorist came upon him and called 911.

He was air-lifted to hospital in life-threatening condition.

Redcliff RCMP say 34 year old Daniel Leger of Medicine Hat has been charged with Failing to Stop After an Accident which resulted in Bodily Harm.
