Southampton Town Police are asking for the public’s help with identifying and locating a driver who killed a 33-year-old homeless man and fled the scene in Riverside earlier this month.

The pedestrian was struck by an SUV that took off without stopping on Flanders Road near Old Quogue Road at 6:28 p.m. on January 13, police said. The victim, David Humberto-Amaya, was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The vehicle in question is a gray, box-style Jeep Cherokee (like the one pictured above) that would have sustained front-end damage.
