Police are still looking for witnesses with information about the fatal bike crash in Wallingford last May.

37-year-old Donald A. Carelli of Milford was riding his bike with another cyclist when he was hit and fatally wounded by a vehicle driven by 35-year-old Derek C. Fries near the intersection of Toelles and South Turnpike Roads. While Carelli was immediately brought to Yale-New Haven Hospital by emergency crews, he died a short time later.
