Harley driver hit by car that ran red light in Seminole, suffers life-threatening injuries

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.

Alcohol did not appear to play a role in the crash, deputies said.

CORRECTION: Linda Oakes was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries Friday morning at Bayfront Medical Center. Earlier versions of this article published online incorrectly reported her condition.
