House and cars damaged by hit-run driver

The Florida Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a vehicle that authorities say crashed into a Spring Hill house over the weekend and caused $15,000 in damage. The vehicle — which struck the home, two cars and two mailboxes in the 1500 block of Overland Drive about 1:30 a.m. Saturday — was described as possibly a maroon Jeep Cherokee, a report said. Authorities said the vehicle suffered heavy front-end damage and a broken rear taillight. Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper Tod Cloud toll-free at 1-800-500-1240.
