Man found dead on the side of the road
HASTINGS, Fla. – St. Johns County traffic homicide detectives were called to a fatal hit-and-run on the St. Johns and Putnam County line on Federal Point Road Saturday night.
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office tells Action News they received a 911 call just before 10 p.m. about a deceased man found on the side of the road.
Police say evidence suggests the victim was lying on the ground on the edge of the roadway when an unknown vehicle ran him over, causing fatal injuries.
This is still an ongoing investigation and SJCSO says the driver of the vehicle may not know he or she struck a person.
If you have any information, you are asked to call the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Investigator J.D. McGinnis 904-209-1498.
