The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) located the pickup involved in a fatal hit-and-run that killed a Morriston woman pushing her bicycle along County Road 337 on June 24.

According to FHP Lt. Pat Riordan, the vehicle—a 2006 Ford Ranger—was located last week, but no one has been arrested.

“We’re still in the process of confirming who the driver was,” Riordan said in a phone interview. “It’ll take some interviews and other things. We don’t have a person in custody, but we have made progress by locating the vehicle.”

FHP continues to investigate the collision that occurred around 7 p.m. on June 24. A 47-year-old Morriston woman was pushing her bicycle south along the right edge of CR 337 just south of SE 59th Place when the Ford Ranger struck her from behind. The woman died at the scene.

Riordan said FHP is not yet releasing the license plate number on the truck.
