SLAUGHTER - Police are searching for a driver who struck and killed a bicyclist in East Feliciana Parish late Friday night.
State Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a possible suspect vehicle, described as a light silver 2007-2013 GMC Sierra. The pickup truck has a black aftermarket ranch style front bumper and black rims.

Moredock was thrown from his bike in the wreck and landed in a grassy area along the highway. He was not wearing a helmet and died at the scene, police said.
