A motorcyclist was hit and killed while traveling on U.S. 19 in Pinellas County on Wednesday.
Troopers identified the victim as a 25-year-old man from Port Richey. He was driving northbound on US 19 when a Ford F150 turned left into the path of the motorcycle causing the fatal collision.
He was transported to Mease Countryside Hospital where he later died.
Troopers say charges are pending against the 56-year-old female driver.
While there is a sense of freedom that comes with riding a motorcycle, there’s also a fear that other drivers won’t share the road. Every day, a motorcyclist is injured or killed in Florida. In too many incidents, the crash was caused by a negligent driver who was not looking or paying attention.
