The Florida Highway Patrol is asking for the public's help in finding a van that hit and killed a man on the Westside last week.

State troopers said their looking for a 1985-2005 Chevrolet van with front and/or left rear damage. The vehicle was described as either an Astro or Safari model and was white. It also has a 6-inch blue stripe about halfway up the body of the vehicle.

On the evening of the crash, it was identified as a vehicle seen numerous times on the Westside, troopers said.

Troopers said the van headed east on Timuquana Road just west of Seaboard Avenue about 10 p.m. Thursday struck 46-year-old Kinley Collard, who was walking east on Timuquana. The van then left the scene.

Anyone with any information about the vehicle or its driver is asked to call the Florida Highway Patrol at 904-695-4000.
