Local Authorities Searching for State Road 50 Hit-and-Run Driver

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on June 20, 2023

Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol are asking for the public’s assistance this morning as they continue their search for the driver of an SUV who was involved in a multi-vehicle collision that severely injured a pedestrian and several others along State Road 50 near downtown Orlando.

According to auto accident reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, it was approximately 1:05 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, 2023, when troopers were dispatched to the intersection of Paul Street and State Road 50, known locally as Colonial Drive, in response to a five-vehicle collision with multiple injuries.

Although certain specific details surrounding the multi-vehicle crash are still under investigation, Orange County authorities have indicated that they are now looking for the driver of a white Dodge Durango that was recorded by traffic cams fleeing the scene of the accident immediately after it occurred. Video footage showed minor damage and black scuff marks on the front of the sport utility vehicle.

Local emergency response teams transported the occupants of one crashed car – a driver and two teenagers – to a nearby hospital for treatment of minor injuries. Several others were treated at the scene by EMTs for minor injuries.

A driver of another vehicle, a 19-year-old woman from Orlando, was also taken to the hospital in serious condition. Lastly, a 64-year-old woman from Tavares, who was a pedestrian at the time of the accident, suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to the closest medical facility. The current conditions of these two victims are unknown.

If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact your local police department, the state’s toll-free Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS, or the Florida Highway Patrol a (407) 737-2213.

An auto accident involving multiple vehicles and victims can be complicated to navigate, especially when it comes to recouping funds from lost wages and expensive medical bills. More often than not, car crash victims who have been seriously injured will sadly face an uphill battle on their road to recovery.
