The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says they’ve identified the driver responsible for a fatal hit-and-run in St. Augustine Beach.
53-year-old Robert Dale Louk died after he was hit on A1A South at Florida Avenue late Tuesday. A witness told deputies she saw a white Toyota pick-up truck hit the victim and then flee.
"I don't even think the person really slowed down."
That truck was found a few miles away.
Deputies then found a man who refused to cooperate with their investigation. Charges are pending against the man while investigators wait for the results of a blood test. The suspect’s identity is being withheld until an arrest has been made.
If you have any more information about this hit-and-run, you’re asked to call Detective Jose Jimenez at 904-209-1458 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-277-8477.
A search warrant has been issued for the suspect vehicle.
