Motorcyclist dies after being hit on I-75 near Brandon

Investigators with the Florida Highway Patrol were trying to figure out what led to a motorcyclist to crash on Interstate 75 early Friday morning before he was run over by a sport utility vehicle.

Corey Allen Lynn, 25, died at Tampa General Hospital about 5 a.m., a few hours after he was hit while lying alongside his Harley Davidson motorcycle on I-75, just south of State Road 574 near Brandon, troopers said. Lynn, of Thonotosassa, apparently crashed while riding the bike just after 2 a.m. and lay injured in the roadway.

At about 2:13 a.m., a 2003 Ford Expedition was headed north on the interstate. Its driver, Ronald L. Fields, 56, of St. Petersburg, did not see Lynn or his bike and ran into both, troopers said. Fields was not injured.

FHP troopers were still investigating the circumstances Friday. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Highway Patrol at (813) 631-4020.
