Ceres police say the suspect vehicle is a dark green Dodge Caravan with a faded black rear bumper. They believe the vehicle has front-end and windshield damage, and that the driver’s side-view mirror broke off.

Northbound traffic on Mitchell Road was blocked from Roeding Road as officers processed and cleared the scene.

The man killed was later identified as 56-year-old Ceres resident Issac Ishak.

A photo of the van suspected in the hit-and-run was also released.
