San Jose police on Wednesday released surveillance video footage related to a hit-and-run collision that killed a bicyclist early Sunday morning and are asking for the public’s help in finding the driver and vehicle.

Officers responded just before 4:30 a.m. Sunday to a report of a collision in the area of South First and Reed streets and located a bicycle rider down in the roadway. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

San Jose Police Department Surveillance video shows the driver of a black truck as he strikes and kills a bicyclist near South First and Reed streets in San Jose, Calif. in the early morning of Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021.
