SEMINOLE — A 49-year-old woman was seriously injured early Friday after being struck on her motorcycle by a driver who deputies said ran a red light.
Linda Oakes was driving her 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle south on Seminole Boulevard around 10:30 p.m. Thursday when she tried to turn left on Park Road.
Deputies said Oakes waited for the green turn signal but was hit by a northbound car that ran the red light.
Oakes was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. She had not been wearing a helmet, deputies said.
Car driver Michelle Boyd, 30, was not injured.
