SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - Police have caught up with a North Port man who was named a person of interest in a serious hit-and-run in Charlotte County.

Joseph Borisovich Dolbun has been arrested and charged in the case.

The crash happened last month. Troopers responded to a serious injury hit and run crash on US 41 and Dahlgren Avenue. In the crash, a car was traveling southbound on US 41 and crossed onto the northbound lanes and collided with a motorcycle.

The motorcycle rider sustained a serious injury and was transported to a local area hospital. The hit and run vehicle (later determined to be a 2016-2017, Honda Accord with a Pennsylvania License Tag) fled the scene.

On December 3, 2020, through weeks of investigative work, troopers discovered a 2016 Honda Accord with a Pennsylvania License Tag, parked at a residential address on Marco Island, Florida.

The owner of the Honda was cooperative, and the Honda had no obvious damage to the front. Upon closer inspection, Troopers determined the front portion of the Honda had been repaired. Troopers further determined a transporter company was hired to drive the Honda on November 12, 2020, from the owner’s residence in Pennsylvania, to the residential address on Marco Island. The Honda was returned to the owner late, on November 19, with no obvious damage. Upon further examination, troopers determined this vehicle to be the hit and run vehicle.

On Dec. 16, 2020, FHP Troopers placed Joseph Borisovich Dolbun under arrest and booked him into the Charlotte County Jail for leaving the scene of a crash involving serious injury, leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage, tampering with evidence and grand theft auto.
