ORMOND BEACH, Fla. (AP) – A Pennsylvania man died after a hit-and-run crash in Florida.

Ormond Beach Police spokesman Keith Walker told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that surveillance video showed an SUV hitting 63-year-old Charles J. Bofinger of Pittsburgh as he crossed a street late Friday.

While searching for the vehicle, police received a call from a man saying his girlfriend had been in a car crash. Officers found her SUV with its hood dented and windshield shattered.
