New Port Richey motorcyclist killed after hitting pickup


Motorcyclist killed after hitting pickup

A 50-year-old motorcyclist was killed Thursday evening after colliding with a pickup, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. The accident happened about 6:30 p.m. Greg S. McKay of New Port Richey was driving his 2007 Harley-Davidson north on Decubellis Road when an oncoming truck made a left turn onto Town Center Road, crossing into his path, the FHP said. McKay crashed into the side of the 1993 Chevrolet Silverado and was thrown from his bike. His head struck the pavement and he died at the scene. The FHP said he was not wearing a helmet. The driver of the truck, Kenneth C. Nitz, 26, of Hudson was not injured. His passenger, Alleana Booth, 36, of New Port Richey suffered minor injuries in the crash. The FHP is investigating to determine whether any charges will be filed. McKay was the second motorcyclist to die on Pasco roads in as many days. William R. Forrest, 71, of New Port Richey died Wednesday afternoon in a fiery collision after a Honda Accord pulled into his path on Trinity Boulevard, the FHP said.
