DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a driver who struck and killed a South Florida cyclist, then fled.

The Broward Sheriff's Office says a man riding his bike in Dania Beach around 2:45 a.m. Sunday was struck from behind by what's believed to have been a Chevy Impala.

Detectives don't know the color of the car, but say it should have extensive damage to the front passenger side.
