A tourist from Knoxville was killed and his wife injured in a hit-and-run crash in Florida Sunday night.

The Palm Beach Post reports Paul McKee, 47, and his wife were on a “working vacation” with their son when they were hit by an SUV near a popular district of shops and restaurants. The son was still at a nearby hotel.

Police are looking for a light-colored 2005 to 2007 Mercury Mariner SUV with damage to its left-front fog lamp lens and possible damage to the turn signal lens.

Investigators believe a black female was driving the vehicle. 

McKee’s wife, whose name has not been released, is at a hospital listed in critical, but stable condition.
