Alabama State Troopers need help finding a pickup truck that was involved in a crash in Cullman County that killed an elderly man earlier this month.

According to a release, the vehicle is believed to be a late 1990s or early 2000s model Chevrolet or GMC regular cab pickup truck. The driver of the truck left the scene of a fatal accident just before 5 p.m. on Aug. 3. The hit-and-run occurred on Alabama 157 at County 1242, where 72-year-old Ervin Lane died from injuries sustained in the crash.
