PASCO COUNTY – A New Port Richey man has been charged with leaving the scene of a traffic crash, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened about 11:30 p.m. Friday (April 28) on Little Road near the intersection of Ridge Road. Troopers said Christian drove a 2000 Dodge Durango out of a private parking lot at 8537 Little Road and hit a 1999 Chrysler van driven by William Colombani, 38, of New Port Richey.
The two talked briefly but Christian left before all the required information had been exchanged. Troopers said they tracked Christian down to his home at which point he made false statements about events after the crash. Troopers said he later admitted leaving the scene of the crash because he had no valid drivers license.
