Authorities are looking for a man they say ran away from a crash he caused Tuesday while a Pinellas County Sheriff's deputy was trying to pull him over.
A deputy turned on his signal to stop a 2014 Toyota Camry just before 8 p.m. near 25th Avenue and 28th Street N near St. Petersburg. The driver would not pull over, deputies said, and instead continued through a stop sign.
Meanwhile, Esther M. Eguiguren Ruiz, 44, of St. Petersburg, drove toward the intersection in a Nissan Sentra along with a passenger.
The two cars crashed and the Camry came to a rest in a nearby yard.
The driver of the Camry ran away, police said.
He was last seen wearing multicolored shorts and had on no shoes or shirt. Deputies said he is a black man in his 20s with a medium build and short hair.
Ruiz and a passenger in the Camry, Raychell Ann Godfrey, 21, were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening.
