VIERA, Fla. – Authorities have charged a 79-year-old woman in connection with a hit-and-run crash last month that left a Brevard County motorcyclist seriously injured, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said Rosaloe Kascmer-Ryan, of Viera, turned herself in to investigators two weeks after fleeing the scene of the crash near the intersection of U.S. 1 and Viera Boulevard.
According to the crash report, Alexander Marchica, 31, of Melbourne, was riding his motorcycle south on U.S. 1 when Kascmer-Ryan, who was traveling north on U.S. 1, failed to yield while trying to turn onto Viera Boulevard.
The front of Kascmer-Ryan's Fiat Spider hit Marchica, throwing him from the motorcycle, the report said. Kascmer-Ryan then fled on Viera Boulevard and her vehicle was later found at a repair shop, according to troopers.
Marchica was treated for serious injuries at Holmes Regional, troopers said.
Kascmer-Ryan is facing charges of leaving the scene of a crash with injuries and was ticketed for violation of right of way, according to the report.
