BALSAM LAKE, Wis. — Polk County sheriff's officials have identified two men who were struck and killed by a driver who fled the scene.

Authorities say 41-year-old Richard Cobenais Jr., of rural Luck and 28-year-old Benjamin Juarez, of Frederic, were involved in a fight that had spilled out onto Highway E in the Round Lake Native American Community Saturday evening.

Sheriff's investigators are looking for a dark colored pickup, possibly a Ford F150 with an auxiliary amber light on top. The vehicle may have some damage to the passenger side headlight area.
