FORT MYERS, FL -- A 48-year old man is dead after a hit and run driver killed him at midnight Christmas Eve on McGregor Boulevard.

An unknown vehicle was traveling north on McGregor Blvd. near Kasamada Drive in Lee County. The Florida Highway Patrol says the vehicle drove upon a pedestrian that was in roadway and the front right of the vehicle struck the pedestrian.
