Driver arrested in hit and run crash that injured Port Richey bicyclist

PORT RICHEY — A driver suspected of hitting a bicyclist Monday and leaving the scene has been caught, authorities said. Krystle L. Latham, 27, was arrested Tuesday afternoon and is being booked into the Pasco jail.

Latham is accused of hitting Anthony Angelo Georgianna, a 46-year-old bicyclist who was crossing Fox Hollow Drive at Regency Park Boulevard when he rode in front of Latham's 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Latham, who also had a 1-year-old girl in her car, stopped and told witnesses she would be right back and then took off, FHP said. Georgianna, of Holiday, was seriously injured and remains in critical condition at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. On Tuesday afternoon, a witness of the crash spotted what appeared to be the car involved and contacted authorities.

Latham, of Port Richey, is being charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving serious injury, failing to report a crash and careless driving.
