Authorities have released photos of the suspect vehicle wanted in connection with a fatal hit-and-run in Chula Vista. 

Pablo Rosa-Velez was heading eastbound on Main Street Monday afternoon at the time of the fatal crash, Chula Vista police (CVPD) said.

As he was pulling out of the driveway of a storage facility on his motorcycle, near Industrial Boulevard, a late 90s or early 00s model Ford Explorer struck him, police said. 

The driver fled the scene; the tan or gold car was last seen driving westbound on Main Street, and then north on Industrial Boulevard, police said. 

Rosa-Velez was pronounced dead at the scene. The husband had gotten married earlier this year and was expecting his second child, his family told NBC 7. 

GoFundMe page has also been set up to help with the burial expenses for Rosa-Velez.

Police continue searching for the driver and car involved. The suspect car will have damage to its driver side. The car is known to frequent the South Bay, especially Imperial Beach, police said.
