On Thursday, Aug. 11, around 9:42 a.m., a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero was traveling northbound on NE Oats St. At some point, the vehicle traveled off onto the left side of the dirt road, and began sliding sideways and rotating in a counterclockwise direction. The Mitsubishi eventually overturned at the edge of the road after colliding with a tree, and came to a final rest on its right side, facing west. The driver fled on foot following the wreck, and first responders were unable to take down a statement or provide medical care. No name or information on the driver has been released by the Florida Highway Patrol.
