It happened Monday afternoon on U.S. 41 just north of Gibsonton Drive.
The woman spoke to 2NEWS sister station ABC Action News but asked that her name not be broadcast or made public. Instead, she is going by her YouTube username, Florida Driver.
"That's what you get, all on video buddy," you can hear her say while laughing in the video.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers arrested the driver, Jeffrey White, 33, of Tampa and charged him with leaving the scene of a crash.
"He kept spinning his wheels but couldn't get out," Florida Driver said.
She added that one of White's friends came with a tow chain to get him out and that he fled before law enforcement officers arrived.
The video shows he took out a light pole owned by the Florida Department of Transportation and caused extensive damage to the grassy median.
As he drove off, Florida Driver said she drove up and took a picture of his tag.
She gave that picture to police and they arrested him Wednesday.
White has since bonded out.
ABC Action News went to White's home but no one answered the door.
Meanwhile, Florida Driver explained she was not ready for this video to go viral. She explained that she only put it online to show coworkers. Now she has received more than 5,000 messages in her YouTube inbox regarding the video.
