HALLANDALE BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Hallandale Beach Police are actively searching for the driver who, they say, is responsible for a fatal hit-and-run that occurred over the weekend.

According to police, the incident occurred Saturday just after 4 a.m. along the southbound lanes of South Federal Highway.

They said the victim was riding his bicycle when a white vehicle, possibly a sedan or SUV, struck him. The victim, identified by police as 37-year-old Wilson Alejandro Seaman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

“He used to love being with horses, being in horse racing,” the victim’s friend Noel Pena said. “It was his passion — family, work and horses. It was always about Wilson. Great person, that’s how I remember him, always talking with every single one at the race track. He was just so friendly. You can’t even imagine what kind of person he was.”

The suspect fled the scene and their vehicle is believed to have front-end damage.

Seaman’s friends gathered for a memorial where the hit-and-run happened, Tuesday night.

If anyone has any information, they are urged to contact the Hallandale Beach Police Department Traffic Homicide Unit at 954-457-3021 or police headquarters at 954-457-1400.
