SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two bicyclists were hospitalized Saturday after one was struck by a car whose driver left the scene but later returned, San Diego police said.

The two cyclists were riding about 7:50 a.m. in Mission Bay Park when a 1990 Ford Taurus, which was traveling south in the 3500 block of Mission Bay Drive, failed to negotiate a curve and struck one of the riders, causing a fracture to the lower left leg and facial abrasions, according to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali.

The crash caused other biker to ride into a light pole and both were taken to a local hospital, Cali said.

The car's driver left the scene but later returned, Cali said. Police said charges against the driver were pending but alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash.
