Police are asking the public for help to find a truck that fled the scene of a fatal hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a 36-year-old Kissimmee man.
The Florida Highway Patrol is currently looking for a newer model (i.e., 2017+), white, Ford F-250 that may have been involved in the accident.

The bicyclist was pronounced deceased at the scene and the vehicle fled after the collision.
