MIDDLEBORO (CBS) — The Plymouth County district attorney has released the identity of a bicyclist who was struck and killed in a hit-and-run crash Friday night on Wood Street.

Plymouth County DA Timothy Cruz said Michael Dutra, 58, was killed in the crash. Dutra’s last known address was in Taunton, the DA said Saturday night in a prepared statement.

On Friday night, debris at the crash scene included groceries Dutra was carrying on his bicycle.

Police said the vehicle involved in the crash sustained “severe front-end damage” after leaving Dutra on the side of the road. Cruz said investigators are looking for a light-colored SUV.

Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to Cruz’s office and the Middleboro Police are investigating the crash. Anyone with information can contact investigators at 508-923-4636.
