— Authorities are asking for the public's help to find a driver who hit a teen riding a bike and then fled the scene Friday night.

It happened on U.S. Highway 301 near the Wilson-Johnston County line. Andrew Lee, 18, of Kenly, was riding northbound in the southbound lanes on U.S. 301 when a vehicle hit him.

Lee suffered serious injuries and remained in critical condition at Duke University Hospital on Monday.

Authorities don't have a description of the vehicle because there were no witnesses.
