ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – Family and friends gathered at a vigil Thursday evening to remember a 16-year-old boy who was killed in a hit-and-run crash earlier this week in St. Augustine.
Dozens came together to light candles, tell stories and remember Dalton Kuhn at Hamilton Upchurch Neighborhood Park. They also pleaded for someone to come forward with information.
“I feel broken that somebody could leave a 16-year-old child alone on the side of the road and they could have stopped," said Wendy Kuhn, Dalton's mother.
Wendy Kuhn said her son was senselessly killed and she wants justice.
"The last text I got, you know, he was on his way. And unfortunately, someone didn't give us the chance to hold our son and say that 'I love you. We are going to be with you.' Whether he was going to live or die, you didn't give us the chance to say I love you," she said.
The funeral service for Dalton will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday.
Police said the boy's body was found Tuesday morning along the side of State Road 312 near Plantation Island Parkway.
Investigators said they believe they teen was killed in a hit-and-run crash Monday night.
