Police are looking for the driver who hit and killed a bicyclist in Brooklyn Wednesday morning.

Police say the BMW struck the 46-year-old cyclist at the corner of Broadway and Halsey Street in Bushwick around 8 a.m.

They say the driver then turned on Boyland Street, hitting two other cars on the way.

Police say the driver then got out the car and ran off.

The bicyclist was taken to the hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The passengers in one of the cars that was hit were also taken to the hospital, where they are listed in stable condition.

Police say they've traced the BMW's registration but are still trying to track down the driver.
