Fatal Hit and Run in Elmira
Elmira police say they have identified the vehicle involved in an early morning hit-and-run that killed a man riding a bicycle.
The victim, whose name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, was riding a bike around 1 a.m. when the accident took place near the intersection of Grand Central Avenue and the Clemens Center Parkway Extension (Link Road).
Police said earlier today they believed the vehicle involved may have been a Dodge Dakota or Dodge Durango pickup truck, possibly silver in color. The vehicle likely has damage to the passenger side front bumper and headlight assembly area.
Just before 8:30 p.m., Elmira police sent a press release saying they are no longer seeking information about the vehicle and more information will be released as it becomes available.
