Hit-and-run crash results in arrest of Iowa student
A student at the University of Northern Iowa has recently been released from jail after being arrested for a hit-and-run motorcycle accident that occurred in October.
According to Iowa officials, the 21-year-old student was traveling down Highway 57 when her vehicle veered left and crossed the center line colliding with a motorcycle.
The collision caused the motorcyclist to suffer from serious injuries including a fractured collar bone, fractured ribs and the amputation of one of her legs. The student was not intoxicated in the accident, but phone records show that she was texting at the time. She fled the scene, but later turned herself in and is facing multiple charges.
