WARREN — Police are looking for the driver of a vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run collision with a bicyclist on Groesbeck Highway, just north of 10 Mile Road, at about 6:30 p.m. Feb. 3.

Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said a $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the driver of a 2015-2017 Dodge Charger, dark in color, that struck and killed a 60-year-old Eastpointe resident.

“It appears that a pedestrian was on a bicycle, crossing against the traffic light. There was a vehicle traveling northbound in the third lane, and we believe that the speed was in excess of the 45 mph speed limit,” said Detective Sgt. Robert Eidt, of the Warren Police Department.

The name of the victim was not released and the investigation remained ongoing Feb. 4. The man reportedly died at the scene.  

Dwyer added, “We are reviewing some video that we were able to recover from a couple of businesses at 10 Mile and Groesbeck, and it clearly illustrates that the driver of the other vehicle was going at a high rate of speed, hit the bicycle, the victim, and then kept going without even slowing down.”

Anyone with information about the collision, the suspect vehicle or the driver involved can reach the officer in charge of the investigation, Detective Cpl. Todd Murray, at (586) 574-4816.
