Investigators are working to find a driver accused of hitting a bicyclist and fleeing the scene.

It happened around 6:45 a.m. at North Bend Road and Northside Drive.

A passing driver found a man lying in a grassy area, and called 911.

"Investigation quickly revealed the deceased male had been struck from the rear while riding his bicycle," the Boone County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

The 48-year-old victim is from Covington. His name is not being released at this time, due to pending notification of next of kin.
