Police are searching for a 1999 or 2000 light-colored Mitsubishi Montero Sport which detectives believe was involved in the hit-and-run death of Lindsay Brown.

Brown was a local pastor and former Navy sailor.

“All he was doing was walking, and he lost his life doing a daily routine, and it’s hard for the family,” Brown’s stepdaughter Lekisha Gilmore told Action News Jax. Brown wore reflective clothing on his daily walks and was hit on the sidewalk.

Brown was killed off Crystal Springs Road on the morning of Sept. 16. Police continue to search for the driver involved.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, in Duval County, 4,097 hit-and-run crashes have been reported in 2020. In 2019, there were 7,612 hit-and-run crashes.

Steve Whitcomb has lived in the area - where Brown was hit - for close to 30 years. He said people need to slow down.

“It’s so dangerous, I call it the Crystal Springs expressway cause people literally go 55, 60 miles per hour,” Whitcomb said.

Police do not have a suspect description, but Brown’s family hopes someone knows something, or that the driver will find it in themselves to come forward.

“He did not deserve this. I hope whoever did this - they have a conscious, and they can come forward.” Gilmore said.
