CRESTVIEW — A man was seriously injured late Friday night when his wheelchair was rear-ended by a motorist who fled the scene.

David W. Newcomb, a 32-year-old Crestview man, was taken to Fort Walton Beach Medical Center after the 9:50 p.m. wreck at the intersection of Stillwell Boulevard and Brentwood Lane.

The vehicle that struck Newcomb from behind may be a late 90's model or early 2000's model of a white four-door sedan. It may be missing a front passenger side headlight, according to the Florida Highway Patrol media release.
