A Brooksville man is dead after the motorcycle he was driving collided with an SUV during the mid-morning hours of Aug. 9.
Sgt. Steve Gaskins, public affairs officer (PAO) for the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) said that shortly after 10:30 a.m on Aug. 9, a 64-year-old woman from Clearwater driving an SUV was traveling northbound on Jefferson Street, north of Marianne Street. Meanwhile, a 65-year-old Brooksville man driving a motorcycle was traveling southbound on Jefferson Street.
When the woman attempted to turn left into the Florida Cracker Kitchen parking lot, her vehicle entered the motorcycle’s path. As a result, the front of her vehicle collided with the front of the motorcycle.
The Brooksville man was transported to an area hospital where he later died from crash-related injuries, Gaskins said.
The driver of the SUV was uninjured, he said.
