DUBLIN (BCN)--Dublin police are looking for a Mercedes suspected of fleeing the  scene of a fatal collision with a bicyclist late Tuesday night, a police  lieutenant said. 
     
Police responded to a report of a man down in the road near the  corner of Dougherty and Fall Creek roads at around 11:30 p.m., Lt. Herb  Walters said.
     
The bicyclist, a man between 55 and 60 years old, was pronounced  dead at the scene of the collision, Walters said.
     
There were no witnesses, but investigators found a vehicle part at  the scene and used it to determine that the vehicle that fled the collision  was a 2010 or 2011 Mercedes Benz.
     
The car had been traveling on Dougherty Road toward San Ramon when  it collided with the bicyclist.
     
The Mercedes may be black and possibly has front-end damage,  Walters said.
     
The name of the victim has not yet been released pending  notification of his next of kin, Walters said.
