The North Carolina Highway Patrol said a Pittsboro police officer found the cyclists in the middle of the highway about 11:30 p.m. Thursday.

Authorities said Scurlock was wearing a reflective vest at the time of the accident.

Authorities are currently looking for a vehicle with front-end and windshield damage, but they did not know the make and model. Anyone with information is asked to call the Hillsborough Highway Patrol at (919) 732-2551 or the Raleigh Highway Patrol Communication Center at (919) 733-3861.
