Pinellas County sheriff's deputies continued investigating this week a Saturday hit-and-run case involving a motorcyclist and pedestrian in Safety Harbor.

She suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and was transported by air to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment.
The motorcyclist fled the scene, and the sheriff's office has not released any description or information on the rider.
