A bicyclist is killed in a hit and run accident early Friday morning and authoites are asking for help in identifying a suspect vehicle.

Saline County Sheriff Deputy Lance Zurfluh said at the scene that a female was riding a bicycle at around 8:15 in the morning, heading west on West Crawford Street west of Salina. She was apparently hit from behind by an unknown vehicle. The vehicle then left the scene.

Zurfluh says that a truck driver passing by came upon the scene. He stopped after seeing the crumpled bicycle. He called for help, and discovered the injured rider nearby.

The rider, whose name was not immediately released, is a female from Ottawa County. She died at Salina Regional Health Center.

Deputies are asking for the public’s help in locating the suspect vehicle. They did find broken parts at the scene. The suspect vehicle is believed to be a 2001 Chevrolet or GMC pickup truck. It might be a Tahoe, Silverado, or similar model. It will have damage to the passenger side front.

Anyone with any possible information is asked to contact the Saline County Sheriff’s Office at 785-826-6500.
