Tampa, FL (November 12, 2019) – Yesterday afternoon, police responded to the Dale Mabry Highway in Greater Northdale where a fatal motorcycle crash took place.
The motorcyclist was immediately killed after another vehicle pulled into his path. He was quickly identified by the police as a 31-year-old man from Tampa. The victim was traveling south on the highway when his Suzuki motorcycle collided with a Toyota Rav4 driven by a 78-year-old female driver.
The driver of the Rav4 allegedly traveled into the path of the Suzuki as she was turning left out of a driveway in the area of 7814 Dale Mabry Highway.
The motorcyclist passed away at the scene of the accident. The female driver od the Rav4 was taken to a hospital with injuries and so was her female passenger.
Charges are pending and the Florida Highway Patrol is working on their investigation at this time.
We extend our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this difficult time. Our thoughts are with everyone who was affected by this accident.
