Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the driver who hit and killed a bicyclist on Wilkinson Boulevard just inside Mecklenburg County late Friday.
Jessey Logan Miller, 28, was hit from behind while riding in the left eastbound lane shortly before midnight, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said. Police found Miller lying in the westbound lane, and Medic pronounced him dead at the scene.
Miller was not wearing a helmet, but his bicycle had front and rear lights, police said.
Police said they have no description of the driver or car that hit Miller in the 10000 block of Wilkinson, just before the road enters Gaston County.
A woman who said she was Miller’s sister told the Observer that Miller was returning to his home off Wilkinson Boulevard after work at a Papa John’s in Gastonia.
