PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Newly released video shows the suspect car wanted for striking and killing a bicyclist in Philadelphia's Strawberry Mansion section earlier this summer, according to police.

William Lindsay III, 32, was killed on the 3800 block of Ridge Avenue on July 12 around 8:35 p.m. Lindsay was cycling to meet up with friends when he was hit less than a mile from his house.

Police say they're looking for a white Chevy Camaro with a red racing stripe.

Video captures the Camero after the deadly accident. Police say the vehicle was last seen driving northbound on Rt. 1 from Ridge Avenue.
