Police said they identified Johnson as the suspect shortly after the public helped locate the vehicle involved in the crash, but were initially unable to locate him. Johnson turned himself in. 

Sean M. Crisco, 30, of Madison, was hit by Johnson's dark-colored sedan in the 800 block of East Washington Avenue near Paterson Street about 1:20 a.m. Saturday and died at the scene, police said.

Crisco was born in Virginia Beach and earned degrees in Peace, War and Defense and political science from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, according to his obituary published in the Salisbury (N.C.) Post. He moved to Madison in 2016 to work at Epic where on his first day he met new friends that became his travel buddies. The companions visited Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, Germany, the Maldives, Iceland and South Africa. 

"He worked hard, played hard, and loved even harder," the obituary read. "He left his mark on all who knew and loved him."
