The man, identified by Cuomo on Twitter as Sid Wolf, and five friends had ordered a Lyft to pick them up in Dewey Beach and take them to Bethany Beach, according to Delaware State Police.
“As the group was traveling southbound on Coastal Highway all in the same vehicle, a disagreement occurred between the group and the Lyft operator,” police said in a statement.
The Lyft driver stopped in the middle of a lane and “demanded all six passengers exit the vehicle,” police said.
Wolf was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The other five people were unharmed.
The driver of the Toyota remained at the scene, while the Lyft driver fled. Police, who are investigating the incident, are searching for the Lyft driver.
