Motorcyclist dies in Pasco crash

NEW PORT RICHEY — Florida Highway Patrol troopers are investigating a Saturday evening crash that left a 21-year-old motorcyclist dead.

Quintin Humphrey of Hudson died at the scene of the accident, which happened about 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of Little Road and Easthaven Court in New Port Richey.

According to a crash report, Humphrey was traveling south on Little Road in the left turn lane.

Delores Pong, 71, of New Jersey was traveling north in a 2004 Honda Civic. She paused at a yield sign then continued through the intersection.

Humphrey's 2001 Triumph motorcycle struck the right rear of Pong's car. Humphrey, who was wearing a helmet, was thrown from the bike and suffered fatal injuries.

Pong had minor injuries.

Investigators said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
