Sgt. Deon Cockrell with DPS said the GMC Yukon was traveling southbound on Ronald Reagan Boulevard when it hit the man on his bicycle. According to a release, “For unknown reasons at this time, the vehicle travelled onto the right shoulder of the roadway,” before hitting the man.

The driver ran away from the scene and wasn’t found during an initial search involving DPS and deputies with the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, WCSO says.

WCSO says investigators believe they have positively identified the suspect.

He is described as a Hispanic male, about 5″8 to 5″10, thin build and wearing a red and white t-shirt.

Anyone who sees a man matching that description in the area should not approach him and instead call 9-1-1.
