An Iowa man is looking for help to find the driver who hit him while he was on his bike and left him along the side of the road, reported KETV-TV.

Dan Owens was riding his bike along Highway 92, just east of Treynor when a vehicle's passenger-side mirror hit his left arm.

"The vehicle had to have come off the highway 3 or 4 feet before he even struck me," Owens said.

The driver then left Owens on the side of the road.

"It's been pretty painful now. I'm going through therapy three times a week to try to get my hand to move because of all the tendon and muscle damage to my arm," Owens said.

Three weeks later, Owens' bandaged arm and the broken-off side mirror are the only pieces of evidence investigators have.

Sgt. Dwayne Riche with the Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information to step forward.

"If there's a body shop that would have encountered, maybe, someone coming in and getting a mirror replaced off one of these vehicles we have listed or someone knows someone, we're just looking for information," Riche said.

Investigators are looking for a 1988 to 1999 Chevy or GMC pickup truck or SUV.

Owens is putting up a personal reward for information that leads to an arrest.

"(I want) somebody to step up. If they know their mirror's broke or gone or if they know their neighbor's mirror is broke or gone that meets the description of the sheriff's department has put together, to come forward and give them the information they need," Riche said.

Anyone with information on the case can contact the Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office at 712-328-5737.
