Florida Highway Patrol troopers are looking for the driver of a truck who hit and killed a motorcyclist and then took off.

Troopers said the accident happened at U.S. 192 and Knotty Pine Road in Melbourne around 6:15 p.m. Saturday.

Troopers said a 25-year-old from Palm Bay was west on 192 when 50-year-old Timothy Robinson, who was riding a bike, crossed in front of the motorcyclist.

The pair collided in the road, and as they were laying in the roadway, the motorcyclist was run over by someone driving a pickup truck.

Troopers said the motorcycle driver, who is not being identified yet, was killed. 

Robinson was taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center where he later died.

Troopers said someone came forward Sunday evening believing they may have been involved in the accident.

Troopers said they have the SUV in their possession and are continuing their investigation.
