CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Authorities in Chapel Hill are searching for a driver that hit two bicyclists Thursday, killing one and injuring the other, WTVD reports.

The accident happened on U.S. Highway15/501 at Wave Road, where a Pittsboro police officer found the cyclists in the middle of the highway at 11:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Investigators said 41-year-old Ivin Levander Scurlock, of Carrboro, died at the scene. The second bicyclist, identified as 40-year-old Alexandria Nicole Simou, of Chapel Hill, was taken to UNC Hospital where she was last listed in critical condition.

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

“She was a really nice person. She didn’t deserve to be hurt like that,” said a friend of the victims, Dirck Martin. “Ivan was nice guy. He didn’t deserve to have his life taken away.”

Authorities are currently looking for a vehicle with front-end and windshield damage, but they did not know the make and model. They also said speed appeared to be a factor given the point of impact and where both victims ended up.

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.
