BARKHAMSTED, Conn. (AP) - Police say the 23-year-old man struck by a pickup truck while riding a dirt bike in Barkhamsted last week has died.

Zachary Dube, of New Hartford, died at the hospital on Saturday night where he had been treated since the hit-and-run crash on Friday night.

Police say the pickup was traveling east on Route 44 when it took a left turn in a restaurant parking lot. The truck struck Dube’s westbound dirt bike and then left the scene. Dube was taken to a local hospital then flown to Hartford Hospital.

Witnesses described the pickup as gray Toyota Tacoma. Police say it likely has some front end damage.
