The Florida Highway Patrol has arrested the suspect involved in a early Thursday morning fatal crash.
On July 16, 2009 at approximately 12:50 a.m. FHP responded to the scene of a crashed motorcycle on SW 122nd Street, east of Archer. A 19 year old Gainesville teenager, Cory Van Leer, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
As the crash investigation progressed it was discovered that Van Leer and his 2006 Yamaha motorcycle were struck by another vehicle, which had left the crash scene.

Her vehicle was impounded for further forensics processing by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, with the results leading to her arrest.
