The driver of the truck is being described as a white male, who was wearing some type of construction vest.
The intersection and area around the accident site remains closed for investigation and reconstruction.

"We're looking for anybody that can identify the truck. Potentially anyone in the area that has a business that has cameras that might be pointed to the street or dashcam videos from private cars."
