OVIEDO, Fla. - Police are looking for the driver who crashed into an Oviedo fire station.

Oveido police said they spotted a suspicious SUV behind a shopping center on Alafaya Trail early Tuesday morning.

But the driver took off as soon as the officers approached, authorities said.

A few minutes later, they found out that same SUV crashed into a fire station on Central Avenue.

Oviedo Fire Chief Lars White said, "I would suspect they've got some serious injuries. Damage to our fire engine will have it out of service temporarily. Our rescue vehicle is OK."

The driver ran off, and police said they think that person was the only one in the car.

Police said they found cocaine and pills in the car, and think the driver may have been dealing drugs out of the car.

Lake Mary police and Winter Springs police are searching the scene with a K-9.
