Investigators say Heather Lynn Mayo, 33, was the driver of a pickup truck that hit and killed an Indian Rocks Beach woman in February as she crossed a street in Pinellas Park.

Detectives say evidence left at the scene of a deadly hit and run that killed an Indian Rocks Beach woman in February links a Palm Harbor woman to the crime.

Pinellas Park Police arrested Heather Lynn Mayo, 33, on charges of Leaving the Scene of a Crash Involving Death and Driving While Intoxicated.

Investigators say Mayo was driving a 1996 Ford Ranger pickup truck that hit Jeanne M. Fisher, 50, as she was trying to cross the 9700 block of 66th Street on Feb. 4.
