Two brothers hurt after driver pulls U-turn and drives toward group of victims.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is searching for a hit-and-run driver that aimed to run down two brothers and their children walking on Holly Bay Drive Monday night.
Brian Price received four staples in his head and stitches and both he and his brother Scott Price suffered bumps, scrapes and bruises as a result of a incident.
According to the brothers, it could have been much worse.
While walking their dog and their children, all under the age of 13, the brothers say a speeding driver ran a stop sign on Holly Bay Drive, narrowly missing Scott's 10-year-old daughter.
"After the car passed, you know, we were yelling and screaming at the car, the car stopped and slammed on its brakes so we went to go talk to the driver," said Brian Price, one of the victims.
But the driver did not want to talk.
According to JSO, the driver turned around and drove directly toward the group.
The vehicle missed them, but the driver did another three point turn and accelerated towards them.
The vehicle struck Brian first, then his brother Scott.
"When the truck struck him he went down and hit the concrete. I went over the truck as the truck kept going," said Scott.
Holly Bay Drive does not have sidewalks so the entire group was in the street. None of the children were hurt.
"They actually went through this painstaking three-point turn to be able to turn around and then come at us and then to do another three-point turn to be able to come at us again," said Scott.
The Price's described the driver's reaction as road rage prompted by their yelling, but they say if it happened all over again they wouldn't change how they reacted.
"That's a natural reaction if you have a car that comes screaming around the curve like that, comes into your path to the point where you have to yank your children out of the street, I would expect to be yelled at," said Scott.
Police are looking for the driver of the newer model black or dark-colored Nissan Xterra with a roof-rack.
The car should have some front end damage and is missing the Nissan emblem, according to JSO.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
