FHP searching for truck driver who injured man on moped in Land O'Lakes

LAND O'LAKES

FHP looking for driver who hit moped rider

Troopers are looking for the driver of a pickup truck they say hit a man on a moped Friday morning and drove away.

At about 6:45 a.m., the truck, possibly a white Dodge, was in the outside lane of State Road 54, just west of The Crossing Boulevard, while 22-year-old Joshua Lee Kapp also approached the intersection on his moped. Both failed to slow down, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report, and the front of the pickup hit the rear of the moped. The report says the driver of the pickup fled the scene.

Kapp was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital-North in Lutz with minor injuries.

The FHP had no more details to release about the driver of the pickup.

Anyone with information about the crash may call the FHP at (813) 631-4020.

  2. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts

    Business

    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
