Police still seeking unknown male driver in Sunday's crash.
MIAMI – An unknown driver crashed his truck early Sunday morning and the location the vehicle ended up was cause for a double take.
According to the Miami Police Department's report, at 7:55 a.m. on April 1 a maroon 1998 Ford Ranger was apparently traveling south in 1900 Block of North Main Street when the vehicle departed the roadway for an unknown reason to the left and hit a City of Miami utility pole.
The truck then continued traveling south into the parking lot of the Short Stop convenience store and gas station at 1840 North Main Street where the truck hit the store's curbside sign and became wedged between the support poles.
The male driver of the truck left the scene on foot prior to Miami Police Officer S. Berry arriving on scene.
Officer Berry received information the driver was seen getting into a gold minivan at another convenience store, Pete's Convenience Store on Goodrich Boulevard.
“The driver ran off and we have not finished the investigation,” Police Chief Thomas Anderson said.
Other than the disabling damage to the crashed truck the Miami Police report lists damages to the City of Miami utility pole and Short Stop's sign.
