A Middleburg man was severely injured Sunday when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

Kevin Michael Helm, 43, was walking north on Hibiscus Avenue near Mayflower Street when he was struck by a car that knocked him to the east side of the roadway, a highway patrol release said. Helm was taken by helicopter ambulance to UF Health Jacksonville.

Investigators recovered parts of a headlight assembly from a white car, but were still working to identify the make and model of the vehicle, which left the area after striking Helm.
