Port Richey man killed in Clearwater motorcycle crash


Motorcycle crash kills Port Richey man

A Port Richey man died Monday in a motorcycle crash in Clearwater, police said. Sean H. McBride, who turned 34 on Feb. 15, was riding his motorcycle north on Belcher Road about 5:30 p.m. He ran a red light at Sunset Point Road and hit a car turning left onto Sunset Point Road, Clearwater police said. The driver he hit was not cited. A Police Department news release contained no information regarding the type of motorcycle or car involved, or how fast McBride's motorcycle was traveling except to say it was "a high rate of speed." The name of the driver in the car also was not released. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor, police said. The investigation is continuing.


Work begins on first of 3 paths

Construction began this week on the first of three paths that will ultimately connect Starkey Boulevard to the trailhead at the Suncoast Parkway. The first phase is replacing the sidewalk along the east side of Starkey Boulevard, from Alico Pass to Wilderness Park Road, with an 8-foot-wide path for pedestrian/bicycle travel. That path is expected to be finished June 28. The second phase, creating a 10-foot-wide multiuse path inside the Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park, will run from May 8 to July 16. This path will meander through the park and connect to the trailhead at the Suncoast Parkway. The last phase of the project is the construction of a multiuse path along the north side of Wilderness Park Road between Starkey Boulevard and the park entrance. Construction begins July 4 and finishes around July 29. Officials urge park visitors to use caution during construction.
