Drunk Hit-And-Run Driver Flees, Tries “Hiding’ in Parking Lot
Judging from police photos, it appears suspect tried 'hiding' his vehicle around the side or back of the large grocery store.
Sunday evening around 6:40pm, the red Chevy pickup driven by a 49-year-old suspect plowed into the back of a Mazda 6 at the intersection of Neel and Hood Ave. The truck fled the scene but was located a short time later at Winco Foods on Clearwater.
Based upon the victim's description, police found evidence on the truck that linked it to the hit-and-run. The driver, Scott Setterberg, likely fled because he feared police would learn he was intoxicated. He did end up being arrested for DUI and hit-and-run.
No injuries were reported from the crash.
