Woman Kills Motorcyclist in Car Accident on U.S. 19
A motorcycle accident resulted in the death of a woman after Brittany Miles, 21, ran into his motorcycle at U.S. 19 and County Line Road. The St. Petersburg Times reported that the motorcycle accident occurred after three 911 calls were made to authorities about a vehicle driving erratically. The first 911 call was at 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday and came from a man leaving the Brass Flamingo, a strip club in Port Richey where Miles works. The caller reported that a woman in a red Dodge pickup drove off the road into a ditch. The driver, believed to be Miles, also managed to rip a sign out of the ground, hit a pole, and then continue to head north on U.S. 19. Two more 911 calls followed reporting Miles’ erratic driving, with the third taking place at 7:06 a.m.
By the time she was successfully taken into custody, Miles had managed escape handcuffs, flee a cruiser, drag and nearly kill a Pasco deputy, and kill a 66-year-old motorcyclist. She remains at the Hernando County jail on numerous charges, including felony murder for the motorcycle accident.
