The incident knocked the scooter rider to the ground, but as he was being removed from the road, a 2016 Nissan Altima struck and killed him, according to FHP.

Authorities have been unable to identify the man and thus notify the next of kin, leading to a public call for identification help.

FHP reports the scooter driver was a white male with a small to medium build and balding hair. He had a short, cropped gray beard and multiple tattoos. The man also had a large eagle tattoo on his chest, a tattoo of a microphone on his right bicep, and a tattoo of a young child on his rib cage with the name “Jailyn.”

FHP is asking for anyone with information to call 800-387-1290 or Crime Stoppers of Suwannee County at 386-208-8477.
