JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. —
Police are looking for a hit-and-run driver who killed a man early this morning.
The crash occurred early Saturday morning on the corner of 3rd St. N. and 13th St. N. at approximately 1:43 a.m., according to the Jacksonville Beach Police Department.
Police say a black Mercedes struck Daniel Stein as he was crossing the road.
The victim died later as he was being transported by life flight to Shands.
Stein was a line cook at the Flying Iguana that’s a few blocks north of the crash.
Action News spoke to neighbors who heard the helicopter landing to help him just after 1:30 a.m. last night.
“That’s sad to think someone did that and there’s so many lights over there. Whoever did it had to know they hit something,” said Ilene Kampfe, a neighbor.
Action News spoke with a manager at the Flying Iguana who told us that Stein was a hard worker who will be missed.
The police are asking for help in identifying the vehicle and its owner. The black Mercedes should have damage as a result of the crash.
If you have any information, contact the Jacksonville Beach Police Department at 904-270-1667.
Daniel Stein's memorial service is set for Tuesday.
