The search for answers continues in a fatal hit and run crash.

Deputies say 27-year-old Corey Justice of West Palm Beach was killed in a hit and run crash in Lake Worth last Friday.

Detective say Justice was walking near John Prince Park when he was hit by a truck.

The driver of that truck left the scene.

Justice's friend Nicole Smith wants answers in this horrific incident.
