FHP seeks hit-and-run driver who injured Hudson woman in Spring Hill crash

A hit-and-run driver struck a Hudson woman's car early Friday morning in Spring Hill before running from the scene, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Around 4:21 a.m., Brittany Metcalfe, 29, was driving a 2005 Infiniti G35 westbound on County Line Road as a man drove eastbound in a 2006 Volkswagen Jetta, approaching Truce Circle, troopers said.

For unknown reasons, troopers said the man veered into Metcalfe's path and struck the rear of her car, causing her to lose control and hit a traffic sign at the intersection.

The driver man fled on foot, troopers said, and Metcalfe was transported to Bayfront Health Spring Hill for treatment of minor injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the FHP at (813)-631-4020 or Crime Stoppers at 1-(800)-873-TIPS (8477).
