Yesterday, it was revealed that Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha Grant was hospitalized after a paparazzi run-in lead to a car accident. Samantha reportedly broke her ankle and fractured her knee after a "confrontation with the paparazzi" caused her boyfriend Mark to swerve their car and hit a concrete barrier near a tollbooth.
But the Florida Highway Patrol is calling BS. Apparently, their officers spent three hours "trawling their database for details" about the accident and came up empty handed.

"Even if they hit a stationary property such as a wall under Florida law you are required to report that to law enforcement," Lt. Kim Montes told Daily Mail. "If you didn't that's considered to be a hit and run."
On a mission to get the the bottom of this VERY IMPORTANT SAGA, Montes reached out to TMZ (who originally reported the story), and they told her the accident happened along an interstate which, it turns out, doesn't even have a tollbooth. Refusing to be defeated (because this is VERY IMPORTANT!), Montes then expanded her search to include all the major roads around the city where Samantha lives, and came up with zip.

"We looked for three hours last night," she said. "The nearest toll road would be the turnpike so we checked the turnpike, we checked I4, we checked all these other roads. We checked by her name, we checked by his name and we didn't find any reports. So we don't know if this actually happened. We can't find any reports basically from all of central Florida. We can't find a report by name or a scenario that was similar to this."
Wow, is this the biggest mystery of our time?
