The Florida Highway patrol investigates the scene of a fatal traffic crash Wednesday afternoon.

The Florida Highway Patrol investigates a Wednesday afternoon crash that killed a motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet and was thrown from the bike. The motorcycle collided with a Honda Accord sedan at Trinity and Tamarind boulevards, sending the Honda's 75-year-old driver, Loraine Manning, to Community Hospital in serious condition. The Highway Patrol said Manning was headed east on Trinity Boulevard just before 4 p.m. and turned left in front of the Boss Hoss motorcycle. The crash sparked a fire that engulfed the motorcycle and the front end of the sedan and was so hot it melted the motorcycle's front wheel. Trinity Boulevard was shut down for more than two hours during rush hour.
