Hillsborough County, FL (February 6, 2019) – A hit-and-run crash on Interstate 4 left one man injured on Monday, February 4th.
According to police, 33-year-old Adam D. Key was driving a 2002 Chevrolet SUV in the westbound lanes of the highway around 12:45 am. Suddenly, a vehicle merged into Key’s lane and directly into his path of travel. Key swerved to avoid the merging vehicle and lost control of his vehicle.
Key’s vehicle veered into the center mediation and crashed into a guardrail before overturning several times. The vehicle eventually erupted into flames. Fortunately, Key was out of the vehicle before it caught fire. Key was taken to Tampa General Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Police are looking for the other driver who fled the scene. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Florida Highway Patrol at 813-558-1800.
