    Curtis Bollinger lost control of his motorcycle at approximately 1:10 a.m. and Shannon Bollinger landed on the roadway, where she was hit by a white Hyundai driven by Brandon Graham, 19, of Callahan, according to the FHP report. 

    Shannon Bollinger was killed, and Curtis Bollinger was seriously hurt, FHP said. 

    Neither Graham or his passenger were hurt, according to the report.  

    Action News Jax spoke with Curtis Bollinger in January 2017, after he was badly hurt in a hit and run.

    The Navy veteran and Nassau County firefighter said he needed several surgeries after someone hit his motorcycle at the intersection of U.S. 17 and Pages Dairy Road in December 2016, just days before Christmas.

    He and his wife have five children.

    Family members described Shannon Bollinger as a loving, devoted mother. 

    Toxicology reports for Curtis Bollinger and Shannon Bollinger from Sunday morning's crash are pending, according to FHP.

    Shannon Bollinger was not wearing a helmet, according to the report.
