CROCKETT, CA. (THECOUNT) — The family of Christopher Bunag, the bicyclist killed in a Crockett, CA, hit-and-run crash, is asking for the public’s help in finding the driver responsible.
Bunag, 42, of Hercules, California, was struck and killed by a truck while bicycling in unincorporated Crockett in Contra Costa County. The vehicle fled the scene Tuesday evening.
The truck that hit Bunag continued west toward Rodeo and remains at large. It was described as an older compact pickup truck that was possibly blue and should have collision damage to the front or right front area of the truck, according to the CHP. Investigators are looking at surveillance video from the area to try and determine the exact make and model.
Relatives and friends describe Bunag as sweet and loving. He worked for a wine merchant and was an avid cyclist. Bunag was a member of the Hercules Cycling Club, a group of bicyclists that organize group rides and other events to encourage bicycling.
The CHP is asking anyone who witnessed the collision, was in the area at the time or has any information to provide to call the Contra Costa-area CHP at (925) 646-4980.
