MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Broward Sheriff’s Office needs your help identifying a hit and run driver who struck and dragged a bicyclist for 50 feet in Pompano Beach, killing the man.

It happened on September 22 at approximately 8 p.m., in the 3300 block of North Dixie Highway.

The victim, Alvin Tubbs, 55, was crossing Dixie Highway outside of the crosswalk when deputies say he was struck and thrown from his bicycle.

The driver of that vehicle stayed on the scene.

BSO said a second car then hit Tubbs, before fleeing. Police say Tubbs would have survived his injuries from the first car that hit him.

“He was actually getting, or attempting to get up after being struck the first time, when he was struck by the second vehicle,” said Broward, traffic homicide detective Don Huneke.

The driver of the second car opened the door, looked back at Tubbs and then drove off, according to witnesses.

Deputies described the second car as a 2003 to 2008 metallic beige Toyota Corolla sedan with damage to the left front.

Tubbs, a husband and father, was taken to Broward Health North where he was pronounced dead.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).

    Why did it take over a month for this story asking for help. Quite possibly the damage is repaired or concealed and the driver has moved on.
