UPDATE: An arrest was made in this case, authorities said Friday.

PHOENIX — Authorities are seeking the public’s help in identifying a truck allegedly involved in a fatal hit-and-run with a bicyclist in Fountain Hills on Tuesday.

A white 2000 to 2002 Toyota Tundra pickup truck possibly collided with a bicyclist on McDowell Mountain Road near milepost 2 sometime between 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. and fled the scene, according to authorities.

Witnesses said the truck stopped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park, north of the collision scene, and two men wearing lime green, long sleeve shirts got out of the vehicle and inspected the right front corner of the vehicle.

The men then allegedly were seen using tools trying to repair the damage to the vehicle, according to authorities.

The vehicle was recorded on video going westbound through the intersection of Rio Verde Drive and 122nd Street at about 6:30 a.m.

There is damage to the front, right portion of the pickup truck including the right headlight, right front fender and hood, according to authorities.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office at (602) 876-TIPS (8477) or (602) 876-1011.
