ST. PETERSBURG — A St. Petersburg woman is accused of leaving the scene of a crash late Friday that hospitalized a motorcyclist with life-threatening injuries, police said.

She turned left on 46th Street and into the path of a 2009 Yamaha motorcycle that was traveling east on 38th Avenue N, police said. The male driver was not identified.

Police said the front end of the motorcycle struck the front passenger door of Lundin's 1998 Ford Taurus.

After the crash, Lundin drove about a half block before running away; she was arrested at her home several hours after the crash.
