Wichita police said Monday they are seeking the public’s help in solving a fatal hit-and-run incident and in identifying the victim, a bicyclist struck by a vehicle on South Seneca late Saturday.
Police responded to the incident at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday in the 1900 block of South Seneca. Police have not been able to identify the bicyclist, who appears to be a 40-year-old white man, police Lt. Kevin Vaughn said.
Glass and other evidence indicated that the vehicle might have been a four-door sedan, possibly white or light-colored, that now has extensive front-end damage from the collision, Vaughn said.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call police at 316-268-4131.

Police think the bicyclist was going north in the curb lane when he was struck from behind, Vaughn said.
The bicycle apparently had a rear reflector, although it’s not clear if it was operating, and possibly a flashlight mounted to the front.
Detectives are combing the area and continuing to collect surveillance video from nearby businesses.
A witness saw a vehicle’s brake lights activate around the time of the incident.
