Police in Florida have identified the driver who struck and killed Salisbury High School graduate Paula Vinsky

Police in Florida have identified the hit-and-run driver who struck and killed Paula Vinsky, a Salisbury High School graduate who was teaching in the Palm Beach County School District.

Vinsky died at the scene after being hit from behind in Loxahatchee last Wednesday around 9 p.m., according to the Palm Beach Post.

The driver was Megan Mathis, 25, and she may not have realized she hit Vinsky because of dark conditions on the road, WPTV reports. Mathis has not been charged and has no criminal history, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Vinsky, 47, taught special needs students at Crossroads Academy in Belle Glade, Fla., according to the Morning Call. She was a 1987 graduate of Kutztown University.

Vinsky enjoyed going to happy hours and brunch with friends at restaurants around the Palm Beach area and she was recovering from surgery nine weeks ago at the Spine Institute of South Florida, according to her Facebook page.
