$1,000 reward: Business owner seeks info in hit-and-run that wrecked company car
Florida Highway Patrol confirms it’s investigating a hit-and-run that happened on I-75 in North Fort Myers Tuesday morning.
Tommy Dykes, the owner of Certified Heating and Cooling, told us the driver of a red pickup truck caused a crash involving one of his company vehicles and left the scene. He said the crash happened on southbound I-75 near Bayshore Road.
Dash cam video in the company vehicle shows the crash take place.
Dykes says the driver of a red truck was merging onto the highway at around 6:30 a.m. when the company vehicle was traveling southbound on the interstate and caused a crash that totaled the car. He says the red truck did not stop at the scene.
The red truck is described as a late 1990s, early 2000s Ford F-150, with two-tone paint — red upper with a tan lower — possibly an Eddie Bauer edition, with a small lift.
Dykes is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who can help. He said tipsters can call or text him at 239-707-5379.
