A Nissan Altima at a stop sign in the intersection pulled out in front of the motorcycle, Randol said. The motorcyclist lost control, the motorcycle overturned and the driver was ejected.

The driver of the Nisaan left the scene but only traveled a few blocks before walking back to the scene, Randol said. Police took her into custody.
A witness to the wreck, Joe Corbin, said the driver of the Nissan might have been unable to see the oncoming traffic because cars parked at the intersection blocked the view.
