ORLANDO, Fla. -

A crash involving five vehicles during some of Sunday's storms sent several people to the hospital, and troopers are now looking for the driver that may have caused the crash.

Officials say the chain-reaction crash started when a green pickup truck traveling northbound on State Road 436 rear-ended a vehicle.

Afterwards, three other vehicles were struck in the southbound lanes, authorities said.

Officials said four people were taken to Winter Park Hospital.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, a Hispanic man who drove the green pickup truck was taken to Florida Hospital East.

When troopers arrived at Florida East, officials said the man had left the hospital.

Authorities said the man is not the registered owner of the pickup truck. Officials said troopers are still looking for him and charges are pending.
