TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — A busy Tampa intersection was closed Saturday morning while police investigated a hit-and-run crash involving a motorcycle.

Tampa Police Department officers are looking for the driver who abandoned their car after the hit-and-run crash, which injured a motorcyclist.

It happened early this morning at the intersection of North Lois Avenue and Hillsborough Avenue.
