    I saw this driver this morning. I'm glad he was caught. It was very SCAREY the way he was driving. I'm certain he would hurt someone.

    I saw him heading east on SR64 from Anna Maria. He was driving east on the westbound lane and was about to have a head on collision. The other car had to swerve out of the way and I had to swerve to the side of the road to let him in. I called 911 and they told me it was a stolen vehicle. He kept driving in and out of traffic. Next thing you know, there was a helicopter following him and a police car that set up spikes. The truck went over them and then disappeared out of my site. He must have gone south and then headed west on Cortez when he crashed on the bridge. I'm glad he was caught because I'm certain he would have hurt someone.
