SCRANTON -- A man is dead after he was hit while riding his bike, sparking a search for the vehicle and the driver who took off.
The deadly hit and run happened early Sunday morning in Scranton, and by late afternoon, police say they had the vehicle involved.
But police are still trying to track down the driver of that vehicle.
Police say they have impounded the SUV they believe was involved in the crash and dash.
Police have not arrested the man they believe was behind the wheel.
According to officials, the man on the bicycle who died was Michael Harmer of Scranton.
The deadly crash happened just after 7 a.m. along South Main Avenue when the driver hit Harmer.
Police say that is when the driver then took off.
Investigators reconstructed the crash and examined what was left of the bicycle.
Later in the day, near South Main Avenue, police found the white Chevy Tahoe suspected to be involved in the crash.
Police impounded the vehicle and a search warrant is in the works.
Neighbors of the victim spoke out.
“I thought it was a cup in the middle of the road…it was the fella's sneaker. Then, I saw the guy,” said James Sobol.
Hours after the crash detectives found the vehicle they believe was involved, near the same street. Police spoke with the woman who owns the SUV, who is not considered a suspect. Police took her phone as evidence.
You can still see the marking investigators left behind as they reconstructed the crash.
Police say the victim was riding on the side of the road near the sidewalk when he was hit.
Pat Urbanowicz of Scranton says she said a prayer in church after hearing of the crash she calls,"Too close to home."
Neighbors say now there is only one thing left for the driver to do: “Turn yourself in. How can you live with yourself?” says Urbanowicz.
