Motorcyclist dies days after Tampa crash

TAMPA — A motorcyclist involved in a traffic accident earlier this month along N 22nd Street has died from his injuries Friday morning, police said.

The motorcyclist was injured Saturday when a driver cut in front of him, authorities said.

Johnny Witchelson Jean, 29, of Temple Terrace, was riding his Honda motorcycle in the area of N 22nd Street and E Frierson Avenue at about 1:45 p.m. Saturday, Tampa police said, when he collided with a 2013 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Frederick Bowden, 63, of Tampa.

Bowden violated Jean's right of way while making a turn, police said.

Jean was taken to Tampa General Hospital after the accident.
