SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - California Highway Patrol is seeking help to find a vehicle that may have been involved in a hit and run crash this month that killed a motorcyclist.

CHP said Thursday they are looking for a 2006-2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser that they believe was involved in the collision that occurred on southbound Interstate 5 near Santa Fe Drive on April 7.

Officers believe the vehicle is missing the right rear section of its silver bumper and has additional damage to the right rear quarter panel, according to CHP Officer Jim Bettencourt.

The crash left Christopher Allen Isaacs, 24, dead after the vehicle collided with him, causing him to lose control of his motorcycle.

The county Medical Examiner said Isaacs then skid along the roadway underneath the rear tire of a tractor-trailer. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.
