Keystone Heights man killed in hit-and-run, FHP says

A Keystone Heights man was killed in a hit-and-run crash Friday morning in Alachua County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the accident happened about 7 a.m. on State Road 26, a mile west of County Road 1469.

According to FHP, a pedestrian was walking west on S.R. 26 when he was struck by an unknown vehicle, which then took off.

Troopers said the pedestrian, a 37-year-old Keystone Heights man, died at the scene.

Troopers said Friday that they were looking for a 2007 to 2012 Dodge Caliber sedan with a missing right-side mirror and damage to the right-side windshield, but FHP said Monday that investigators had expanded the search to include a 1996 to 2007 Plymouth Voyager, Dodge Caravan or Chrysler Town & Country minivan.

Anyone with information is asked to contact FHP at 1-800-387-1290 or Crime Stoppers of Alachua County online or by phone at 352-372-7867.
