Woman arrested, motorcyclist seriously injured in St. Petersburg hit-and-run

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.

Sandra Lundin, 35, of 4560 31st Ave. N, was driving west on 38th Avenue N just after 9 p.m., 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.

Lundin faces a charge of leaving the scene of a crash. She was released from the Pinellas County Jail on Saturday morning on $5,000 bail.
