Motorcyclist dies in Hillsborough Avenue crash

TAMPA — A 31-year-old man died Friday after his motorcycle hit a truck that failed to yield, authorities said.

The man, whose name has not been released pending notification of family, was driving east on Hillsborough Avenue on a 2000 Kawasaki ZX900 just after 7:00 p.m., according to the Florida High Patrol. Randall Scott Crowe, 51, of St. Cloud, was coming in the opposite direction on Hillsborough in a 2011 GMC K2500 when he made a left turn to go south on Orient Road. The motorcyclist had the right of way, the patrol said, but Crowe turned in front of him. The motorcycle hit the right side of St. Cloud's truck and the motorcyclist, who was wearing a helmet, was ejected onto the road, where he died.

The incident is still under investigation.
