Airborne motorcycle kills Holiday pedestrian

HOLIDAY — A Holiday man walking along a road was killed Monday evening by a motorcycle flipping from another collision, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Richard K. Dickens, 53, died.

Luz M. Quiles, 73, of Holiday was driving a 1990 Toyota east on Louis Avenue and trying to turn left at Lucas Street.

At the same time, a Suzuki motorcycle traveling over the speed limit was passing slower vehicles on Louis Avenue from the westbound lane.

The motorcyclist, Joshua H. Cross, 20, of Tarpon Springs, collided with the left front portion of the Toyota as it attempted the left turn.

The impact flipped the motorcycle several times, sending it toward the north shoulder. That's where it hit Dickens, who died at Helen Ellis Memorial Hospital in Tarpon Springs.

Cross' injuries were serious. Quiles suffered minor injuries.

Charges are pending.

No further information was released.
