Florida Highway Patrol released more information about a vehicle crash in South Dunnellon that led to the death of a motorcyclist.
According to an FHP news release, which doesn’t ID the motorists involved in the 2:01 p.m. collision Thursday, April 1, a 73-year-old man from Ludington, Michigan, was riding a motorcycle south on U.S. 41, approaching the intersection with West New Lenox Lane.
At the same time, a 29-year-old Citrus Springs man driving a sedan north on U.S. 41 overtook another vehicle leaving the Personal Mini Storage driveway.
In doing so, the sedan traveled into the motorcyclist’s path and caused a head-on collision between the vehicles, ejecting the motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, according to FHP.
Emergency responders transported the motorcyclist to a hospital, where he later died from his injuries, and the sedan’s driver suffered minor injuries.
