Sidney Wolf and five others hired a Lyft driver to pick them up in Dewey Beach and take them to their home in nearby Bethany Beach, according to the police report. Along the ride, there was some sort of disagreement between the Lyft driver and the passengers.
Police say the Lyft driver stopped in the middle of the southbound left lane and demanded the group exit the vehicle. A Toyota Corolla, also traveling southbound, moved lanes to avoid hitting the stopped Lyft. But that driver did not see Wolf standing in the roadway and he died on the scene and the other passengers were not injured.
The Toyota driver pulled over. However, detectives say the Lyft driver immediately fled.
