Police were searching Sunday for a 2000 to 2004 black Chevrolet Monte Carlo that lost its right-side rear-view mirror when it hit a bicyclist on Hillsborough Street near Ashe Avenue at about 1 a.m.

Saturday evening, officers charged Saturday evening that a woman was driving while impaired when an SUV she was operating came up behind a bicycle on Falls of Neuse Road, hit it and threw the rider over 100 feet, and drove off with the bicycle hung up on the front.

In the first incident, Linda Thomas Banks, 48, of 401 Sawmill Road was going the same way that Jason A. Epstein, 28, was riding near Morocroft Drive when the accident happened about 7:50 p.m., police said. They estimated that Epstein was thrown 123 feet while the 2005 Ford SUV drove off with his bicycle stuck on its front end.
