The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office is looking for a driver who hit and killed a bicyclist Sunday night.

A vehicle was traveling eastbound on Sandalfoot Boulevard approaching Inlet Circle around 9 p.m.

PBSO said the bicyclist, Donald Eugene Flinn, 55, Tamarac, Fla., was heading westbound in the center double turn lane of Sandlefoot Boulevard. 

Investigators said Flinn may have crossed the eastbound travel lane as the vehicle was approaching.

The front of vehicle struck the right side of Flinn, ejecting him from the bicycle.

PBSO said the driver failed to stop and left the scene.

"If you know the car, at least anything, saw anything ,I'd appreciate it," said Flinn's daughter, Megan Flinn.

Sister Brittini Flinn, added, "We deserve to know what happened and that person deserves to go to jail because who hits someone and runs away and kills them."

Flinn is remembered for his kind heart and jokes and quirky smile.
