HONEA PATH, SC (FOX Carolina) – State troopers have asked for help tracking down a vehicle they believe was involved in a hit-and-run that seriously injured a moped rider.

The wreck happened around 10:18 p.m. Thursday on US 76, also known as Belton Highway, near Secondary 664.

Troopers said a 2014 Ford F-150 pickup that is either a Lariat, King Ranch or Platinum edition, struck the moped and then fled the scene.

Troopers are unsure of the color of the pickup, but said the vehicle was last seen traveling east on US 76.

The truck will have damage to the passenger front and passenger side.  The passenger side mirror should also be missing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the South Carolina Highway Patrol at 864-241-1000 or 1-800-768-1503, or you can call Anderson Area Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC (274-6372).
