The reward for information leading authorities to the driver in an unsolved hit-and-run case has been increased to $10,000.

The victim, Bryan Bennett Wrigley, was struck and killed while riding his bicycle on April 13, 2011, on County Road 214. Wrigley was riding eastbound when a westbound vehicle hit him and then drove away from the scene.

Deputies responded to a 911 call at 3:21 p.m. but found Wrigley deceased.

Evidence at the scene indicated that the vehicle was a 2001-2003 blue Ford Ranger XLT pickup. A witness reported seeing a blue extended-cab Ford Ranger pass by his home on C.R. 214 shortly after the crash with a bicycle tire stuck to the front of the truck.

The witness described the driver as a young man between the ages of 17 and 22. The identity of the driver and location of the pickup remain unknown.

Anyone with information on the identity of the driver or the location of the pickup is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-277-8477 or download the Crime Stoppers App (P3Tips) to text the information. The caller will be eligible for cash reward of up to $10,000 if the tip leads to an arrest.
