Suspect in Brandon hit-and-run turns herself in to detectives

VALRICO -- A driver suspected of hitting a couple on a motorcycle in Brandon on May 15 and fleeing the scene turned herself in to detectives Thursday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

Cheryl Denine Brown, 45, of Valrico was traveling north on Bell Shoals Road and tried to turn left into a Walmart parking at Bloomingdale Avenue and Bell Shoals Road, the Sheriff's Office said. She turned in front of the motorcycle being ridden by David Lindsay, 46, and Connie Lindsay, 45, of Brandon, who could not avoid hitting the left front end of Brown's sports utility vehicle, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Brown drove away, and the Lindsays were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries, the Sheriff's Office said.

Detectives found Brown's vehicle under a tarp in a back yard at 3070 Wister Circle in Valrico.

Brown is charged with leaving the scene of a crash with serious injuries, and driving with a suspended or revoked license.
