LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police seeking a truck involved in a fatal hit-and-run on Dixie Highway Wednesday. 

Police say what may be a blue Ford Explorer pictured in surveillance footage is believed to be involved in the accident that killed a motorcyclist. 

LMPD spokesperson Dwight Mitchell said on Wednesday witnesses told authorities the driver of a blue SUV was trying to cross east to west on Dixie Highway from the parking lot of the Valley Station Shopping Center.

He said a motorcycle heading south on Dixie tried to avoid the truck and lost control of the motorcycle. Witnesses say the person riding the motorcycle was thrown from the bike and hit the truck. 

Police say the vehicle may be a blue Ford Explorer, but had previously described it as a blue Chevy Trailblazer. Officials say it may have damage to the rear left side.   

Anyone with information on the vehicle's whereabouts or owner is asked to call the Crimetip Hotline at 574-LMPD (5673).
