The video shows the unknown driver of a 2003 Kia Sedona minivan stopped southbound in the left turn lane on U.S. 41 around 7:45 a.m. and waiting to turn left into a RaceTrac gas station parking lot as Kelley was headed northbound.

The video shows Kelley bearing left to avoid the minivan, but was struck on the rear driver’s side, propelling it in to the parking lot of Lantern Inn & Suites, 7251 14th St. W.

The impact caused the Audi to rotate and overturn several times while careening through the parking lot as the driver of the minivan made a U-turn and drove away.

The video shows two views from hotel surveillance video -- one showing the initial impact, and another from above a swimming pool that shows the Audi continuing to overturn before striking a concrete wall and coming to rest on its hood.

Kelley was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital for treatment of critical injuries.

The Florida Highway Patrol is searching for the Sedona, which has right front-end damage. Anyone with information is asked to call FHP at (941) 751-8350 or submit a tip through the CrimeStoppers website.
