Florida Highway Patrol is searching for a man who slammed into a car, leaving its driver in critical condition, and fled the scene in St. Petersburg on Tuesday morning.
Around 10:38 a.m., the 62-year-old driver of a Hyundai Accent was traveling southbound on 49th Street North when she made a left turn onto 46th Avenue North and was struck by a vehicle traveling northbound. The crash was captured on video.
Video footage depicts the Hyundai being smashed into a utility pole on the corner of the street. The driver of what appears to be a gold 2002 Lexus ES300 did not exit his vehicle to inspect damage but fled the scene about 20 seconds after the initial impact.
