One person has now turned themselves in to police after a hit-and-run took the life of a cyclist in Schomberg.

Emergency crews were called to the scene on Highway 9, between 15th and 17th Sideroad, around 10:15 p.m. on Sunday.

According to OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt, the 26-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are not sure what time the cyclist was struck.

OPP collected security footage that showed a vehicle striking the cyclist, then slowing down before racing away.

A vehicle description was not released, but Schmidt said in a tweet around 4:30 p.m. Monday that a person surrendered to police and no other suspects are being sought.

No charges have been laid at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

CORRECTION: This is a corrected story. Police originally incorrectly identified the age of the cyclist as 27
