Troopers searching for man in connection with Palm Harbor hit and run

PALM HARBOR — The Florida Highway Patrol is searching for a man accused of running away Monday from the scene of a crash involving injuries.

Troopers believe Christopher Dohmen, 24, of Palm Harbor, was speeding south on Belcher Road in a Chrysler 300 about 8:40 p.m. when he lost control at the intersection of Alderman Road.

He sideswiped a Nissan Altima, then rotated, struck a curb, overturned and hit a Duke Energy light pole, troopers said.

The Chrysler rolled another 1,700 feet and the passenger, Ashley Love, 25, was thrown from the car.

The Nissan's three passengers, Nicolas Diamantidis, 62, Maria Eskanazy, 62, and Anna Diamantidis, 57, were taken to Florida Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries and released.

Love was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital with serious injuries, but was released and booked into the Pinellas County jail Tuesday on charges of battery on a paramedic and violating her probation.

FHP asks anyone with information on Dohmen's whereabouts to call (813) 631-4020.
