Woman pleads guilty in crash that killed bicyclist
Arrest warrant shows Amber Borden, 21, was drinking with friends before crash
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A Middleburg woman has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a crash that killed a woman on a bicycle more than seven months ago.
Amber Borden, 21, was drinking with friends in Riverside the night of the crash, according to her arrest warrant. She later called her mother, saying she hit someone on a bicycle. JSO obtained cellphone evidence that placed Borden in the area at the time of the crash in late March.
Police said Summer Black, 34, was riding east on Beach Boulevard near Southside Boulevard about 2:30 a.m. March 25 when she was struck from behind by Borden’s Kia. She did not survive her injuries. Investigators said Borden drove away from the scene.
Black’s family told News4Jax that Borden later turned herself in to police.
She will be sentenced next month.
