ROBERT, La. - Louisiana State Police are looking for a car damaged in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 58-year-old bicyclist in Robert. The victim's name was being withheld until police can reach his family. Trooper Nick Manale said the man was from Hammond.

Manale said the man was hit from behind late Saturday by a maroon sedan while riding north on Louisiana Highway 445. His body was found Sunday.

Manale said the car, possibly a Saturn, probably has damage to its right front bumper, quarter panel and windshield.
