JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said a man was hit and killed by a pickup truck Saturday night at the corner of N. Main Street and Union Street. 

JSO was called around 6:50 p.m. Officials say a man was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

First Coast News spoke with a witness at the scene. She said she was in the center lane of N. Main St. giving change to a panhandler right before he was hit. She said once he received the change, he walked backwards towards the sidewalk and fell on the ground.
