Sketch provided of man accused of flashing kids

Pasco sheriff's detectives have released a sketch of the man suspected of exposing himself to several children and an adult in the past two months. He is shown with a floppy camouflage hat he wore during some of the incidents. During one, he also wore a blue T-shirt with "Survivor" printed on the back in white letters. Officials have described him as a "serial exposer" who may have flashed up to seven people in six incidents. Most of his victims were children near Pasco schools or bus stops. Anyone with any information on the possible suspect is asked to contact the Pasco Sheriff's Office at (727) 844-7711 or leave a message on the toll-free tips line at 1-800-706-2488.


Four injured in rear-end crash

Four people were airlifted to hospitals in critical condition Thursday afternoon after a crash on Kent Grove Drive in front of Greenfield Cemetery. Sgt. Larry Kraus, spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol, said the two-car collision happened at 4 p.m. and involved a red Pontiac Firebird and a Chevy TrailBlazer both heading south on Kent Grove. Kraus said it appears the TrailBlazer hit the Firebird from behind, although it is unclear what prompted the collision. The impact sent both vehicles off the road, with the TrailBlazer rolling onto its roof. Kraus said there were three people — two men and a woman — in the Firebird. One of the men was partly ejected from the car. The driver of the TrailBlazer was a woman and the only person in the vehicle. Kraus did not release any names and said the cause of the accident is under investigation.
