JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Jacksonville man is dead after being involved in a collision at University Boulevard and Merrill Road near Jacksonville University Sunday afternoon.

After the collision, the driver of the at-fault vehicle attempted to leave the scene and then physically struck an officer in the process of being captured, according to police. 

The victim has been identified as Robert Hyde, 53. 

Reports show Hyde was killed when a driver, identified as Jonathan Philip Lindsay, 20, ran a red light and struck Hyde's vehicle on the driver's side. Hyde was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
