A 73-year-old Tampa man was killed in a motorcycle crash Saturday morning.
The crash occurred on SR-52 east of Ehren Cutoff in Land O Lakes, Florida.
According to Troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol, a 29 year-old Spring Hill man was traveling east in a 2009 Dodge Caliber on State Road 52 to the east of Ehren Cutoff. The driver of the Dodge collided with the man’s motorcycle from behind.
FHP reports that the man was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. He was transported to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point where he died from his injuries.
Troopers do not suspect that alcohol played a role in the crash and charges are listed as pending.
