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.

Bofinger died at a hospital.

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.

Twenty-five-year-old Jessica Struthers of Ormond Beach was charged with driving under the influence causing death and leaving the scene of a fatal crash. A police report said her blood alcohol level was 0.105, above the 0.08 legal limit.

Struthers was held Sunday on $57,500 bond. Volusia County jail records didn't show whether she had an attorney.
