That caused the driver to fail to see a bicyclist and collided with it.

The vehicle failed to stop.  It was described as a green Chevrolet Suburban and should have damage in the area of the left front headlight.

The bicyclist, a 13-year-old juvenile of Ruskin, was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital in critical condition.
