A one-time staffer of former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was killed after being pulled from a Lyft and hit by a car in Delaware on Sunday, authorities said.

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 traveled south on Coastal Highway, all in the same vehicle, a disagreement arose between the group and the Lyft operator,” police said in a statement.

The Lyft driver stopped in the middle of a lane and “requires all six passengers to leave the vehicle,” police said.

A 2016 Toyota Corolla, driven by a 27-year-old man, was approaching the car when it abruptly stopped and changed lanes to avoid hitting the Lyft, police said. But the driver did not see that people had got out of the car and hit Wolf.

Wolf was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The other five people were unharmed.

The Toyota driver remained at the scene while the Lyft driver fled. The police, who are investigating the incident, are looking for the driver of Lyft.

In a statement, a Lyft spokesperson said: “We are heartbroken by this incident. Our hearts are with Mr. Wolf’s loved ones at this incredibly difficult time, and we’ve reached out to offer our support.”

“We have permanently removed the driver from the Lyft community and are assisting police in their investigation,” the statement said.

An obituary for Wolf, a father of two, said he was “a people magnet and was the first to welcome you with a hug.”

“His life force was unmistakable and irresistible. He effortlessly gathered friends and dear family, especially. To see him with his daughters was to see love embodied,” the obituary reads.

Cuomo said Wolf was “a phenomenal civil servant who worked relentlessly for the betterment of all NY people.”
