Troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol are seeking the identity of a driver that crashed a car into a Road Ranger on the Howard Frankland Bridge.
The crash occurred at approximately 2:31 p.m. on Friday, July 23, 2021.
The Florida Road Ranger, was traveling northbound on the bridge near Milepost 37, along the outside paved shoulder and coming to a stop to assist a disabled vehicle.
The female driver of a 2014 Mazda 6, was traveling northbound in the outside lane of I-275. Just prior to the 28 year-old male exiting the Road Ranger truck, the woman traveled partially onto the outside shoulder and sideswiped the Road Ranger’s vehicle.
After the initial impact, the Mazda 6 traveled down the grass embankment and collided with a concrete barrier wall before coming to final rest. The driver exited the Mazda and entered a gray Nissan Versa driven by a heavy-set black male and left the crash scene.
Troopers say that the driver, who is not the owner of Mazda, was described as a white or Hispanic female with blonde hair.
The Road Ranger was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries, according to Troopers
