Hours after a hit-and-run accident Thursday morning left a 13-year-old bicylist with serious injuries, a Florida Highway Patrol trooper asked the man identified as the driver who left the scene to turn himself in. Instead, the driver hung up the phone, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The FHP identified that man Monday as Donald Ray Thomas, 20, of Goodrich Avenue in Sarasota. The FHP said it plans to seek an arrest warrant for Thomas for leaving the scene of a crash with serious bodily injury.
