FHP Looking For Quintette Road Hit And Run Driver

July 10, 2013

The Florida Highway Patrol is looking for a hit and run driver that caused an accident Tuesday afternoon on Quintette Road.

An unknown make and model pickup truck was traveling east on Quintette Road as 77-year old Frances I. Ard of Cantonment signaled and slowed to make a left turn onto Frank Ard Road abut 4:50 p.m. The unknown pickup, traveling at a high rate of speed, attempted to pass Ard in a no-passing zone, according to the FHP. The two vehicles collided, sending the unknown pickup into the ditch. The unknown truck returned to the roadway and fled the scene eastbound on Quintette Road.

Ard was not injured.

The unknown pickup was described an an older model, lighter color truck, possibly beige in color. It will have right side damage and possibly transferred blue paint from Ard’s vehicle.

Anyone with information on the accident is asked to call (850) 484-5000 ext. 330 Callers can remain anonymous.

    People who live near or on 95A have been complaining about the speeding vehicles for a long time. Unfortunately only a few get caught because the sheriff’s office doesn’t have the manpower to watch this area constantly and respond to other crimes. DOT won’t do it and the FHP isn’t responsible for it. I guess this person will get off the road when he hits something or someone who hurts him or his truck enough to stop him.

    This sounds alot like an older beige Chevy/GMC pickup with a white male driver that drives on 95A near Quintette regularly. I have witnessed this vehicle on multiple occasions between the intersections of Hwy 29 northbound and 95A, Hwy 95A and Neal Rd, Hwy 95A and Cedar Tree, Hwy 95A and Stacey Rd, and 95A and Coweta. He is wreckless, careless, unsafe, operates at higher speeds than posted, weaves, fishtails, passes against oncoming traffic, passes on the right (grassy) shoulder. i personally have witnessed him do all this in the past six months, and upon his identification and a look at the truck in question, would gladly testify in court against him.

    This sounds like the same truck that hit me a few years back and kept on going..The truck that hit me was also an older model.It will have blue paint on it also since it hit me at the back panel and went completely along to the front panel.The tail gate was a 2 tone brown that I don’t think matched the rest of the truck.Hope they catch the jerk!
