28-year-old motorcyclist killed in Spring Hill crash

SPRING HILL — A 28-year-old motorcyclist was killed early Tuesday after colliding with a minivan, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash happened about 3:18 a.m. on Sealawn Drive near Seaview Drive, according to the FHP.

James Boehm of Brooksville was westbound on Sealawn Drive. An eastbound minivan driven by Tammy M. Holly, 31, of Spring Hill turned left in front of the motorcycle, and the front of the minivan collided with the motorcycle, according to the FHP.

Boehm was thrown from the motorcycle and died at the scene. He was not wearing a helmet, the FHP said.

Troopers said Holly wasn't wearing a seat belt and had not been drinking.

At the time of the accident, Holly was delivering newspapers for the St. Petersburg Times, according to home delivery service operations manager Jim Thompson.

He said Holly's mother works as an independent contractor for the paper, and Holly was working as a subcontractor for her mother.

"They've been really good delivery people for us," Thompson said. "We've had no issues with their delivery service."

An alcohol test was pending for Boehm, according to the FHP.
