Jacksonville, FL (January 8, 2019) - A man from Jacksonville died in a hit-and-run that occurred on Normandy Boulevard on Monday, January 7th. Around 9:00 pm, 29-year-old Charles Nicholas Raybuck was walking in the travel lane when he was struck by a vehicle that was traveling eastbound on Normandy.
Rather than stopping, the vehicle fled the scene immediately after impact. Raybuck died from injuries sustained in the crash. The Florida Highway Patrol is still searching for the suspect vehicle. Although police have not released a description of the car involved, a bumper from the vehicle was located at the scene of the collision.
Anyone with any information regarding the accident is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol.
