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.

Kelly Lichtenberg, the passenger, was treated and released from Bayfront Medical Center. Her husband, James Lichtenberg, was stable and improving, hospital officials said.

Authorities say a pickup in the same lane collided with the back of the bike. The motorcycle driver, James Lichtenberg, lost control, officials said. The Lichtenbergs were thrown onto the roadway.

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

The Lichtenbergs are from Chamberlain, S.D.
