A 44-year-old St. Petersburg woman is hospitalized in critical condition, after the Harley-Davidson that she was riding on crashed Saturday night, reports Old Northeast-Downtown St. Pete Patch.
The 44-year-old woman was the passenger on a Harley-Davidson that crashed on U.S. 301.
She was riding on the back of a 2005 Harley-Davidson motorcycle driven by a 45-year-old man of Riverview, at about 8:15 p.m., on U.S. 301, just south of Boyette Road.
The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reports that a white Mustang may have cut in front of the motorcycle, while making an “improper lane change,” or the Mustang “violated the motorcycle’s right of way.”
The motorcycle overturned, and the Mustang drove off from the accident.
Both the woman and man suffered serious injuries and were taken to Tampa General Hospital.
Neither was wearing a helmet, according to the FHP accident report.
