Action News Jacksonville reports that Kelly, 42, is believed to have been struck in a nearby paring lot, and dragged into the road by the truck. Kelly’s family have said she and Paco were inseparable.
Kelly’s father, G.C. Bostick said:
I don’t see how someone could hit her here and drag her all the way out to Beaver St. and not have known it. I just don’t know how I’m going to tell her mama.
Police have obtained CCTV footage of the accident, though it’s thought the driver might not have known they’d hit Kelly. Our thoughts go out to Kelly’s family at this sad time.
