BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) - 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.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Polk County Sheriff's Department at 715-485-8300.
