PHOENIX — Each Friday, we're looking for your help to track down fugitives in Arizona.

Wanted: Fredrick Hurt

Charges: Second-degree murder

Hurt is wanted on a felony warrant stemming from a deadly crash in 2017, when he struck a motorcyclist while driving and failed to appear in court.

Police say on July 9, 2017, just after midnight, Hurt was allegedly speeding on Thunderbird Road near Cave Creek Road. Hurt reportedly rear-ended a Harley Davidson motorcycle ridden by Bradley Mitchell.

Mitchell was thrown from the motorcycle and died at a local hospital about three hours later. Police say Hurt's B.A.C. level was .128. Court records show that Hurt was driving about 20 miles over the posted speed limit of 50 m.p.h.

He was indicted for second-degree murder, and is now missing. Investigators believe he is still in the Phoenix-area.

Hurt is 40 years old, 6 feet tall, and weighs 170 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

The warrant is valid as of December 12, 2019.
