The Tennessee Highway Patrol is looking for any information in relation to the death of a Wilson County cyclist as a result of a hit-and-run crash last Sunday on Old Murfreesboro Road.

The THP said 66-year-old Marvis Sweatt was riding his bicycle on Old Murfreesboro Road around 9 p.m. when a vehicle struck him and fled the scene. He was then hit by a van and pronounced dead as a result of his injuries.

Police are searching for a 2002-2007 Saturn Due or a 2005-2009 Chevrolet Equinox. The vehicle may be gold or tan, and will be missing a driver’s side mirror and possibly may have damage to the front and/or driver’s side.

Anyone with information can call the Tennessee Highway Patrol Nashville Regional Dispatch Center at (615) 741-2060 and request Trooper Rick Alexander or Sgt. William Gregory.
