A hit-and-run crash, a Ford from out of state and a gunshot...or it sounded like a shot

A Saturday morning incident turned out to involve less gunplay than first thought, according to Doral police.

A red Ford was involved in a crash with another car at the intersection of Northwest 25th Street and 79th Avenue Saturday morning. Initial reports to police said after firing a shot at the other car the driver of the Ford took off for the nearby southbound Palmetto Expressway entrance.

Upon further investigation, police determined that what the other driver heard was the backfire of a loud muffler on the Ford.

No one was injured.
