Wakulla County, FL - Troopers need your help finding a driver who left their passenger in critical condition after a crash in Wakulla County.

The accident happened around 1 am Wednesday on Whiddon Lake Road, just west of Old Field Road.

Troopers say the driver of a 2010 Kia Sportage failed to negotiate a sharp, left curve and traveled across the concrete culverts and down an embankment, hitting a tree.

Troopers say the unknown driver then ran, leaving the passenger, 21 year old Logan Wortwick, in the vehicle with serious injuries.

Investigators say the crash is alcohol related.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Florida Highway Patrol at 850-245-7700.
