COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- The man accused in a hit and run case caused by road rage that happened Wednesday morning, has been identified as 22-year-old Donald Juhl.
According to the arrest report, the vehicle Juhl was driving was registered to his mother.
Officers believe he may have also been in possession of an illegal substance, but nothing was ever found.
The road rage allegedly started on Airport Pulling Rd. when a woman was cut off by a white Yukon. She honked her horn at the male driver, later identified as Juhl, who proceeded to throw something at her car, before speeding off toward the Home Depot parking lot.
The woman followed Juhl, trying to get his license plate number.
Juhl sped through the Home Depot parking lot at 60-65 mph, according to witnesses. He missed the turn, hit a curb, flew up and ran into a parked Mercury. He then hit a Jeep, pushing the Jeep into a third car.
Witnesses say Juhl then peeled out of the Home Depot parking lot and headed to Miller's Ale House. He parked at that location and the three people inside the vehicle fled on foot, running to PetCo.
Juhl was arrested at PetCo. He will likely be charged with three counts of fleeing the scene with property damage, in addition to road rage charges.
