LaBelle driver hits power pole, gets out and runs away


LaBELLE -- On Nov. 24, 2021 at approximately 8:20 am, the Florida Highway Patrol attempted to initiate a traffic stop on a 2006 Acura for speeding on Helms Road. The Acura fled the traffic stop, disregarded the posted stop sign at Helms Road/State Road 29 and collided with a power pole on the southeast side of the intersection. The driver (sole occupant) then ran on foot into a nearby wooded area. 

After an exhaustive search, troopers located and arrested the driver without further incident. The driver was identified as Terra’jhe Addison, age 21, of LaBelle. Addison was placed under arrest for no driver’s license, resisting without violence and fleeing/eluding and booked into the Hendry County Jail.
