On Sunday, November 12, 2006 just before 7:00pm Dana Solomon was struck by a vehicle while walking home from the Kangaroo Express convenience store on Normandy Blvd and Yellow Water Rd on the westside of Jacksonville, Florida.
Investigators believe that Dana may have been hit by a small, dark colored, metallic truck which fled the scene.
After fighting for her life for a week in the intensive care unit, Dana’s organ’s began to fail and she died on November 19, 2006.
Left to grieve and wonder what kind of person could hit another human being and leave them in the road are Dana’s friends and family, including her son who was only 18 months old at the time of her death.
