DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - The Dothan Police Department is asking the public for help finding the suspect in a fatal hit-and-run crash that claimed the life of a 56-year-old bicyclist late Tuesday night.

The bicyclist, identified as Dwayne Holloman, of Dothan, was struck at the intersection of Clayton and North Range Street. He was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at South East Alabama Medical Center.

The driver of the vehicle that hit Holloman did not stop, police said. While investigators don't have a suspect, they believe the public should be on the lookout for a black or dark-colored Saturn that should have front-end damage. It should also be missing two hubcaps.

Dothan police couldn't speak on if the driver will face charges. At this point, their main concern is locating the driver and the vehicle.

"They definitely need to turn themselves in or at least contact us so we can sit down and talk about this and what happened," said Lt. Scott Long.

Holloman's family is also asking the person responsible to turn themselves in, so that he can get justice and the family can get closure.

"If anybody knows anything, just let the officers know who did it and who didn't do it. We just want to get justice," said Gabriel Crosby, Holloman's brother-in-law.

If you have any information about the crash, vehicle, or the driver, please contact the Dothan Police Department at 334-615-3000 or CrimeStoppers at 334-793-7000.

This is the fifth pedestrian fatality in Dothan in 2017.
