JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle and killed on Dec. 31 has been identified by the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.
Stephen Wallace Hancock, 51, was crossing the street around 6:30 a.m. in the 4500 block of Emerson Expressway from west to east, according to a release from JSO Public Information Officer Melissa Bujeda.
There is no crosswalk or streetlights in the area, Bujeda said.
A driver saw Hancock crossing the road while traveling north in the left lane and swerved to the right to avoid him. Hancock did not stop and was hit by the vehicle's left front corner, then the windshield.
Hancock was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The investigation is ongoing, Bujeda said.
