Suffolk County police have released surveillance photos and identified the type of truck that a hit-and-run driver used to critically wound a 43-year-old bicyclist this week in Holbrook.

Investigators believe that the suspect was driving a 2012 or newer Hino Series 200 or Series 300 box truck when the driver struck the victim shortly before 9 p.m. Monday on Veterans Memorial Highway and fled the scene, police said.

The passenger-side view mirror glass insert was found at the scene, but the mounting bracket and mirror housing may still be on the truck, police said Friday.

The victim, Bradley Samuel of East Patchogue, is still in critical condition at Stony Brook University Hospital. Both he and the truck were heading eastbound when the victim was hit.

Vehicular Crime Unit detectives ask anyone who may have witnessed or has information on this crash to call them at 631-852-6555 or call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.

Police said the truck involved in the hit-and-run looked like this.
