One man is dead after a hit and run on Route 1 in Falls Township early Thursday morning.

Police say a 34-year-old bicyclist from out-of-state was struck and killed near the Fairless Hills exit at about 1 a.m.

Officers found the vehicle they believe was involved abandoned further down the highway on the opposite side. They are searching for the car’s owner.

K-9 units scoured the area but were unable to locate them. Authorities believe the suspect may have been picked up by another motorist.

Police say the vehicle is a black 2006 BMW sedan. It is registered to a person from Trenton, NJ. They were not at home when officers checked the residence.

The highway was closed for about three and a half hours while police investigated the scene. PennDOT and the Morrisville Borough Police Department assisted in the investigation.

Anyone with information can reach out to Detective Dennis Oconnell at (215) 949- 9100 ext. 416 or
