"I can't believe I got hit by a car. That's the first thing that went through my head," Alan Petroli told News 5.

Both of his arms fractured, Petroli is still in disbelief.

"There's two fractures in my left arm, one in my right, I can't bend my arm completely flat," he said. 

It all happened Sunday at about 11 a.m. at North Chapel and Lincoln Avenue in Louisville, near the train tracks.

"A lady in a silver sedan pulled out and hit the front side of my bike," Petroli said. 

He said he had to brace himself on the front of her car, then she rolled down her window and talked to him. 

"We had kind of a heated exchange," Petroli said he was angry. The driver rolled her window back up and drove away. 

He said he hopes the police find the woman who drove off.  

"If anybody out there heard something, maybe they're afraid or something like that," Petroli said. "I understand, but at the same time, you can't go around running into people and driving off." 

The car is described as a silver sedan. The driver as a woman in her 20's with light blonde hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Louisville Police at (330) 875-1607.
