FOX 4 Staff
FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Florida Highway patrol is looking for a vehicle involved in a hit and run crash last night on southbound I-75 just south of the Daniels Parkway exit.
The FHP says Christopher Laster of Fort Myers was driving in the center lane of the highway when the driver of a red car cut him off sideswiping Laster's SUV and clipping its front end. The crash happened just after 8:30 p.m.
Laster was able to bring his vehicle to a controlled stop in the median. Laster told investigators the car that hit him stopped on the west shoulder but then fled the scene.
Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has any knowledge as to the identity or location of the hit and run driver or vehicle is asked to contact Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Richard M. Verbiest at (239) 344-1730.
