A Kendall driver was struck by a vehicle that fled the accident scene.  The deputy said Wednesday morning at 10:20am 53-year old Ronnie Pio was traveling west on County Road ‘O’ in the Town of Lemonweir.  As he approached Carrig Road, an unidentified driver failed to stop for the stop sign on Carrig Road and collided with the Pio gold colored 2012 Ford Escape.  The unidentified operator of the maroon colored mini van drove away.  Pio stopped and called authorities.  He complained of possible back pain and was transported by private vehicle for a medical examination.
