A Brooksville man is dead after the motorcycle he was driving collided with a pick-up truck near the intersection of US-98 and Mondon Hill Road on Thursday evening May 19, 2022.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), a pick-up truck driven by a 48-year-old man from Port Richey, Ga. was traveling west on US-98 approaching the intersection with Mondon Hill Road while a motorcycle driven by a 34-year-old man from Brooksville was traveling north on Mondon Hill Road. At the same time, a sedan driven by a 52-year-old woman from Brooksville was stopped in the eastbound inside travel lane of US-98.
When the driver of the pick-up truck failed to observe a red traffic signal, the truck proceeded into the intersection and into the path of the motorcycle where it collided with that vehicle.
As a result of the impact, the motorcycle collided with the Brooksville woman’s sedan.
The Brooksville motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet at the time, was taken to an area hospital where he later died from the injuries he sustained in the incident.
The drivers of the sedan and of the pick-up truck were both uninjured.
