Escambia County, FL (July 1, 2018) – Members of the Florida Highway Patrol are looking for two men after a strange hit-and-run incident that happened in Escambia County. The incident took place around 1 a.m. on Saturday morning on New Warrington Road. It happened near the intersection of Jackson Street.
At the time, the suspect was stopped in his vehicle at the intersection. The victim’s vehicle then pulled up behind them. The suspect started to rev his engine, smoking his tires and putting his vehicle in reverse. It then hit the front end of the victim’s vehicle.
The two vehicles then pulled into a parking lot. The victim told the suspect that he was calling 911, which caused the suspect to speed away. At this time, the FHP is looking for a late 90s or early 2000s Chevy Silverado pickup truck. The victim received minor injuries in the accident.
