COLLIER COUNTY, Fla - Florida Highway Patrol has released the name of the suspect involved in Tuesday's high speed chase on Alligator Alley.
It happened just before 1:30 p.m. and ended with a crash near mile marker 86.
Collier County Sheriff's Deputy Daniel Muhlhahn saw a silver Nissan Altima traveling East on I-75. A Collier County Sheriff's Office spokesperson says the car matched the description of a vehicle in a Lee County Burglary.
Muhlhahn tried to pull over the driver, 21-year-old O'Brian Hunt of Sunrise, Florida but Deputies say he took off and took them on a high speed chase.
FHP says Hunt swerved in front of a semi truck driving in the right lane and the deputy followed, but when Hunt suddenly stopped along the shoulder near mile marker 86, a chain reaction ensued.
The semi ran into the back the of the Deputies SUV pushing the Sheriff's car into the front side of the Nissan.
Deputy Muhlhahn was taken to Physicians Regional Hospital with minor injuries. Hunt was taken to Naples Community Hospital with minor injuries.
The driver of the semi truck, Charles Hidalgo, was not hurt in the crash.
Hunt was taken to the Collier County Jail. He faces a slew of charges for resisting arrest and fleeing deputies. The Lee County Sheriff's Office has not released any information regarding a possible connection in the case.
