LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Yesterday the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a series of hit-and-run crashes.

The first incident occurred on McGregor Boulevard when a white Chevrolet pickup truck was involved in a hit-and-run traffic crash and fled the scene.

After the collision, the Chevrolet hit two more vehicles in the areas of Gladiolus Drive and eastbound on Daniels Parkway.

After the third crash, the Chevrolet tried to flee the scene again.

A witness stopped to assist with the crash and the driver of the Chevrolet exited the truck and stole the witness's vehicle and began to flee the scene.

The vehicle was then spotted in Lehigh Acres using traffic cameras. After LCSO deputies conducted a traffic stop they apprehended the driver Logan Chaney.

Chaney has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, fleeing and eluding, and possession of Fentynal.
