JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Family and friends gathered Friday evening to remember a Jacksonville woman killed in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 95 last weekend. 

A vigil for La-Shaun Diane Ealey, 21, began at 7 p.m. at Friendship Fountain. 

Ealey was driving on I-95 just north of Church Street when her Toyota Corolla was hit by a Dodge Ram truck just after 1 a.m. Sunday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. 

The driver of the truck, 50-year-old Keith Wade Harris, fled the scene and was later arrested, troopers said. 

Ealey died at the scene.
