A motorcyclist died Saturday when he lost control of his cycle and crashed on the Indian Rocks Beach Bridge, the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office said.
The motorcycle driven by Travis Eugene Fales, 43, was going east in the median lane about 5:50 p.m., investigators said. Fales, of Brandon, lost control and slid into the concrete rail. He was ejected from the motorcycle.
Fales was not wearing a helmet, according to the Sheriff's Office, which said speed was a factor in the crash.
