A biking waitress was struck in a hit-and-run. Now, police might have a clue who did it.

A Sunrise waitress never made it home from work last week after she was hit on her bike. Now, police might know who did it.

A surveillance video released Friday shows a young man pulling into a gas station and getting out of his car. The windshield of his gray Nissan Sentra is shattered, and he makes laps walking around the car to inspect the damage. Then, minutes later, he drives off.

Michelle Holguin, 53, was struck by the man and left unconscious next to her damaged, white mountain bike in the July 15 incident. She was taken to the hospital in critical condition, police said.

Holguin was struck in the 12600 block of West Sunrise Boulevard in front of a Chik-Fil-A restaurant, police said. The damage on her bike suggests that the vehicle that hit her likely has front-end damage, which the video of the Nissan shows.

The incident follows several serious hit-and-runs earlier this year, including a man killed while crossing the street in Davie last month, an elderly man hospitalized in May and Fort Lauderdale teenager killed on New Year’s Day.

Anyone with information about the hit-and-run is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 953-493-TIPS(8477). Broward Crime Stoppers is offering a $3,000 for information.
