Husband still in hospital, wife released after hit and run crash in St. Pete

ST. PETERSBURG — A couple on a motorcycle were injured Wednesday after they were rear-ended by a truck, officials said.

The truck, a maroon pickup, left the scene, officials said.

The Lichtenbergs are from Chamberlain, S.D.
