A Florida man who knocked on a New York City vehicle window because he apparently thought it was his Uber ride has died after the driver got out and punched him.

USA Today reported Jones turned himself in Thursday.

The two men got into a confrontation early Sunday in the borough of Queens, and Jones allegedly struck Szabo in the face, according to the New York Police Department.

Sandor Szabo's employer, What If Media Group, said the man died on Tuesday.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday.

Wake Forest basketball spokesman Steve Kirkland emailed a statement to The News & Observer Thursday night that said, "We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information".

Szabo lost consciousness when his head hit the pavement, and he was brought to an area hospital in critical condition. He was arraigned today on a misdemeanor assault charge and released on his own recognizance after entering his plea.

Mr Szabo's family said he was in New York City to attend a wedding. Szabo's brother said he thought Szabo may have mistaken an SUV for a cab, according to the New York Daily News.

The investigation is ongoing, and charges against Jones could be upgraded, police said.

Jones, a Philadelphia native, joined the Demon Deacons staff in May 2017 after coaching at Central Florida, Virginia Commonwealth and Florida Gulf Coast and playing at Arkansas Tech and North Platte Community College in Nebraska.

His employers described him on Facebook as "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman". He was fun to be with, interesting, and always interested. "We are going to miss him dearly".
