FHP Seeks Highway 29 Hit And Run Driver In White Crown Victoria

April 17, 2019

The Florida Highway Patrol is searching for a driver involved in a hit and run Tuesday afternoon on Highway 29 at Kingsfield Road.

The FHP said the driver of a white Ford Crown Victoria failed to stop before hitting a vehicle that was stopped for a red light. The Crown Victoria rear-ended a 2008 Chevrolet Uplander driver by 37-year old Sabrina Youtzy of Cantonment. The force of the collision pushed the Uplander into a 2017 Mitsubishi driven by 50-year old Vicki Ortega of Cantonment.

After the crash, the driver of the Crown Victoria pulled over, exited her vehicle and asked if everyone was OK before fleeing the scene south on Highway 29, according to the FHP. The hit and run driver was described as a black female, about 150 pounds, 5-foot 5 inches tall with short hair.

Youtzy, a toddler in Youtzy’s vehicle, Ortega and a 5-year old passenger in Ortega’s vehicle were not injured.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Trooper Constance Knowles at at (850) 484-5000 or email constanceknowles@flhsmv.gov.
