A motorcyclist was killed Monday after colliding with a truck on Colonial Drive. According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), the early morning crash happened near the intersection of Colonial Drive and State Road 417. A pickup truck, being driven by a 45-year-old male, was traveling north on the SR-417 exit ramp. As he approached the intersection with Colonial Drive, he attempted to make a left turn. At the same time, a motorcyclist entered the intersection in front of the pickup, at which point it was hit from the side.
A motorcycle accident on U.S. 92 claimed the life of one man and resulted in criminal charges for another for leaving the scene of an accident. Florida Highway Patrol investigators say the 24-year-old motorcyclist died from injuries he suffered when a Honda driven by a Plant City man pulled out in front of him. Troopers say that the victim was traveling eastbound on his motorcycle on U.S. 92 around 7 p.m. on February 18 when a 1997 Honda Accord turned left onto U.S. 92 from the Plaza Mexicana parking lot. The driver of the Honda was attempting to head west on U.S. 92, but pulled directly into the path of the rider.
