MIDDLEBORO (CBS) – Police have released more information about the vehicle believed to be involved in a fatal hit and run accident in Middleboro last week.

Family members say Michael Dutra was riding his bicycle Friday when he was struck and killed on Wood Road just a few miles from his home. The driver who hit him did not stop.

Massachusetts State Police say debris found at the scene appears to belong to a 2005 to 2009 light colored Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle involved in the crash likely has a missing or broken right front marker lens, shattered right headlight lens and right front bumper damage.

“There’s no way this person could actually believe they didn’t hit anything. They know they did. They took something from us, our dad,” Shannon Dutra, the victim’s daughter told WBZ-TV.

The family said Michael Dutra had already suffered through a lot of challenges in his life. The 58-year-old was a liver transplant recipient who nearly died last year from complications but fought back. Now the family says his second chance at life was cut short.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Middleboro Police Department at 508-947-1212 or State Police at 508-947-2222.
