Tampa Police detectives investigating a fatal hit and run are asking for the public's help in identifying a vehicle of interest.  On March 19, 2016 at approximately 8:46 p.m. the Ford F-150 in the video was spotted traveling east on Interbay Boulevard.  It made a right turn to travel south on MacDill Avenue.

Detectives want to locate the truck's owner/driver to talk with them about the fatal crash involving a bicyclist that occurred at Interbay and Martindale Avenue around the same time that the Ford F-150 was spotted on surveillance.

The vehicle of interest is described as a 2000's model Ford F-150 extended cab pickup truck light in color.  The truck was towing a two axle utility trailer at the time it was seen driving near the scene of the fatal hit and run.

Anyone with information about the vehicle and/or its owner is asked to contact the Tampa Police Department at 813-231-6130.
