Miami-Dade Police on Sunday named the driver who detectives believe was involved in a hit-and-run crash that left a motorcyclist in critical condition earlier in the week.

But police say Eladio Garcia, 36, has not been seen since the Thursday crash at Southwest 112th Avenue and Southwest 44th Street.

According to police, Moshe Moll, 21, was riding a Yamaha 750 motorcycle at about 9 p.m. when Garcia, in a stolen white Chevrolet Tahoe, made a left turn into Moll's bike. Garcia, police said, then drove off, crashed into a house and took off running.

Police said Garcia, who lives with a family member near the crash site, has not been home since.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
