    The father of a cyclist injured in a Pembroke Pines hit-and-run spoke exclusively to NBC 6's Justin Finch.

    Police are looking for the driver of an SUV that struck a man on a bicycle and left him for dead on a Pembroke Pines street.

    Mohamed Anwer, 22, was cycling to his home in Hollywood when he was struck by a black Range Rover in the westbound bicycle lane of 6300 Pines Boulevard around 1:15 a.m. Monday, Pembroke Pines Police said.

    The vehicle fled the scene. Anwer suffered extensive injuries and was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital where he remains in critical condition.

    Anwer's father, Mohammed Ahmed, said his son suffered fractures to his skull, face, hip and leg, but said he's responding to family members and hopefully getting better.

    "We have a big, big, huge community support," he said. "People are praying for him and it's working."

    Police said the 2003-2005 Range Rover has front end damage, possibly on the passenger side. Anyone with information is asked to call Pembroke Pines Police at 954-431-2200.
