Man dies in Tampa motorcycle crash

TAMPA — A 30-year-old motorcyclist died Sunday night after a collision with a pickup.

Police said Jonathan Pearson of St. Petersburg was headed west on Kennedy Boulevard about 9:30 p.m. on a 2006 Sukuzi motorcycle as Joseph Rametta, 58, was driving a 1999 Toyota pickup north on Clark Street, crossing onto Kennedy Boulevard when he apparently failed to see Pearson.

Pearson hit the brakes and his motorcycle skidded, falling on its left side and hitting the right side of the truck just in front of the rear wheel, police said.

Pearson was pronounced dead at Tampa General Hospital's emergency room.
