Bradenton, FL (February 28, 2019) - A 19-year-old man was critically hurt in a hit-and-run crash in a hotel parking lot on Tamiami Trail on Thursday, February 27th.
The incident took place at the Lantern Inn and Suites, near Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, around 7:45 a.m. At that time, the driver of a 2003 Kia Sedona attempted to make a left turn from the road into a nearby gas station. As the driver attempted to complete the turn, the Kia collided with a 2018 Audi A3, driven by the 19-year-old. As the Audi driver swerved to avoid the crash, it was struck in the right side by the Kia, causing it to overturn in the hotel parking lot.
The Audi struck a retaining wall near the hotel pool and also a parked vehicle before coming to rest. The driver was taken to a trauma center with serious injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.
