Motorcyclist struck by car dies Friday

A Beverly Hills motorcyclist injured Wednesday on U.S. 19 by a driver failing to obey a stop sign died Friday at Bayfront Medical Center, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Nicholas Burns Jr., 22, was driving his motorcycle north on U.S. 19 when the driver of a gray Pontiac Grand Am ran a stop sign on Bougenville Avenue and tried to turn left onto the highway, the release said. The left side of the car struck Burns' motorcycle, which came to rest in the median. The car turned south onto U.S. 19 and kept going. Witnesses say it had damage on the left side. Authorities are still searching for the driver. Anyone with information may contact Sgt. Heather Glenny toll-free at 1 (800) 235-6019 or send an e-mail to heather [email protected]


Theresa Jones, the 46-year-old woman whose body was found in the back yard of a burned-out house in Holiday this week, rented the property. A headline Friday misstated her connection to the house.
