DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - A motorcyclist was hit by a driver who fled the scene around 12:20 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of North Clinton and Cottage streets, according to the City of Poughkeepsie Police.

The motorcyclist was not injured and police said they have a "very vague" description of the vehicle that fled the area, making it difficult to perform a search, police said.
