A bicyclist was killed at First Avenue South and South Andover Street on Tuesday morning in a hit-and-run collision in Seattle’s Sodo neighborhood, according to the Seattle Police Department.

The 61-year-old man was riding a bicycle on First Avenue around 5:45 a.m. when he was struck in the northbound lane by a car that then drove away, police said, citing witnesses.

The cyclist died at the scene, police said.

Both directions of First Avenue were closed between South Spokane Street and and South Hudson Street as detectives investigated the scene.

Detectives are looking for a white or silver compact four-door hatchback, similar to a Toyota Prius, police say. The vehicle will likely have damage to the right front headlight area.
