FORT MYERS, Fla. The Florida Highway Patrol continues to investigate a fatal hit-and-run crash that happened on Palm Beach Boulevard September 3.

A pedestrian, Felipe Hernandez Pasa, 36, was killed around 12:09 a.m. when a Toyota approaching the intersection of Palm Beach Boulevard and Figuera Avenue hit Pasa as he was walking north across the intersection, according to the FHP.

Following the collision, FHP says the driver and passenger exited, looked at the front of the Toyota then reentered the vehicle before fleeing the scene.

The vehicle was described as a beige 2004 to 2005 Toyota Sienna minivan with front end damage, according to State troopers.

It’s unclear if alcohol was involved for the driver or pedestrian, and charges are pending a further investigation, State troopers said.

Troopers are requesting anyone that has information regarding the driver or passenger of the Toyota to contact the Florida Highway Patrol at 239-938-1800 or Crimestoppers.
