Tampa man dies in motorcycle accident

TAMPA -- The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is investigating a motorcycle accident that killed a 22-year-old man early Sunday.

Thomas James Nott of Tampa was driving his 2006 Yamaha motorcycle southbound on Crawley Road in Odessa about 2:15 a.m. when he attempted to apply his brakes on a curve and lost control, deputies said.

The motorcycle slid into a tree and Nott landed in a culvert, where he died at the scene. Nott was wearing a helmet.

An autopsy will determine if alcohol or drugs were involved, authorities said.
