10 people were injured in a rollover accident on State Road 29 Tuesday.

It happened after a vehicle tried to pass a tour van just south of Immokalee.  The Florida Highway Patrol says the driver of another car tried to avoid a head on collision with the passing car and struck the van.

9 people in the van were injured.

"He was panicked, he was confused, he was shocked," said the girlfriend of the driver who crashed into the van.

FHP says the driver who passed the van did not stop after the accident.

"How can you just leave, how can you just not come back, you see what you caused?," said the driver's girlfriend, who did not want to be identified.

Witnesses tell 4-In-Your-Corner, the driver who left the scene may have been in a red Toyota Camry.  Anyone with information on him is asked to call FHP.
