Authorities are searching for a driver who fled the scene of a fatal crash near Yuba City last week.

CHP officers say Kelsi Carr, 23, of Meridian, was killed June 3 while riding as a motorcycle passenger on Highway 20 near Lytle Road, after the bike's driver, Nathan Hanks, 28, slammed into the back of a pickup.

Carr was killed instantly, Hanks suffered major injuries and the truck fled the scene.

Investigators announced Wednesday they suspect the pickup involved is a 2001-2004 Toyota Tacoma pickup, possibly white.

Anyone who sees a truck matching that description with rear-end damage should call the CHP Yuba Sutter Office at (530) 674-5141.
