According to FHP, 35 yr-old Richard Allen Wilson, Jr. of Jacksonville was struck and killed around 11:40 p.m. Friday night after a dark blue 2014 Ford F150 ran off the roadway, striking Wilson, who died at the scene.

The driver of the truck did not stop, FHP said, instead the truck continued traveling north up Main Street.
