Ocean County officials are looking for a vehicle involved in a crash that left a bicyclist dead in Jackson Township Sunday afternoon. 

On Sunday around 12:00 p.m. Jackson Township officers were summoned to the area of Farmingdale Road for a report of a motor vehicle crash involving a bicyclist. 

Upon investigating, officials discovered that a 2017 Audi A4 was traveling westbound on Farmingdale Road when it swerved to avoid a head-on collision with a red SUV. 

The Audi then swerved into the left lane to avoid the crash, and struck a bicyclist. 


After striking the bicyclist, the driver of the Audi over-corrected his steering and struck a tree. 

The red SUV fled the scene and continued eastbound on Farmingdale Road. 

The bicyclist was pronounced dead at the scene as a result of the incident. 

The driver of the Audi was transported to CentraState Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.

Further investigation revealed that the vehicle that may have caused the crash is believed to be a red or maroon Hyundai. The driver of the vehicle is believed to be a Caucasian woman with a young male child.
