RAMROD KEY, Fla. (WSVN) — Investigators are asking for the public’s help after a woman was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Ramrod Key, early Sunday morning.

The victim, 43-year-old Nehama Rena Mondzioch, was riding her bicycle southbound in the northbound bike lane of U.S. 1 when she was struck at the 26.5 mile marker by a northbound vehicle, according to Florida Highway Patrol Cpl. David Riso.
