On Friday, April 27, around 4 p.m. there was a two-car accident near the intersection on Hwy. 98 in front of Resort Quest in the westbound lanes.
The driver of a Jeep Cherokee rear-ended a Mercedes and fled the scene of the accident on foot after reportedly dropping a Four Loko can out of his car. Witnesses on vacation from Tennessee said that when the driver of the Jeep ran from the scene, the man in the Mercedes chased after him into Destin Commons.
The driver of the Jeep was apprehended by security at Destin Commons.
At 4:30 p.m., the left lane of Highway 98 was still blocked by the abandoned vehicle.
