The collision propelled the female bicyclist onto the west grass shoulder where emergency responders pronounced her dead at the scene.

FHP investigators said the Ford Ranger is between a 2006-11 model and should be missing the right headlight and turn signal assembly.

Anyone with information is directed to call the FHP Regional Communications Center in Jacksonville at 800-387-1290 or CrimeStoppers of Levy County at 877-349-8477.  

Editor’s note: Corrections made to the story include the Morriston woman was pushing her bicycle and not riding it and the FHP added that they did not know the color of the Ford Ranger pickup.
