Motorcyclist dies after another driver fails to stop at intersection

GIBSONTON — A man driving a motorcycle died Saturday after another driver failed to stop at a stop sign and drove into his path, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said. Angel Maldonado, 48, of Homestead was traveling southbound in the median lane on U.S. Highway 41 in Gibsonton at 1:35 p.m. on his 2012 Suzuki motorcycle about 55 mph. Walter F. Wagner, 86, of Apollo Beach was driving a 2008 Ford Explorer west on Pennsylvania Avenue. Authorities said Wagner failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection and drove into Maldonado's path. Maldonado braked, leaving 80 feet of skid marks, and hit the rear driver side of the Explorer. Maldonado was pronounced dead at the scene. He was wearing a helmet, the Sheriff's Office said. The investigation is continuing.
