Daytona Beach, FL – A man arrested Monday on drug charges is now being charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving death and driving without a license.
The Daytona Beach Police Department says that 38-year-old Michael Sollberger was the driver in a hit-and-run on September 28, 2018 that took the life of 61-year-old Bruce Stanley Wilson.
DBPD traffic homicide investigators say that Wilson was headed home on his bicycle that night, crossing Nova Road about 50 feet south of the Bellevue Avenue intersection when he was hit by a car traveling northbound on Nova Road. Wilson was discovered by a passerby.
Investigators could find no witnesses to the accident but surveillance cameras in the area captured images of the suspect vehicle. Tips and other information received from the community, along with investigative techniques used, led police to Sollberger.
He was brought to police headquarters where he confessed to the incident, according to DBPD.
