Motorcyclist driving in bicycle lane badly hurt in Tampa crash

TAMPA — A motorcyclist who went around stopped cars into a bicycle lane crashed into an SUV and was badly hurt Friday afternoon, deputies said.

Just before 3:30 p.m., a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle driven by Andrew J, Larocca was headed west on E Fletcher Avenue, approaching Avalon Heights Boulevard, when he saw cars stopped ahead, Hillsborough County deputies said.

Larocca began driving in the bicycle lane instead.

At the same time, a 2001 GMC Yukon driven by Michael Scott was going east on Fletcher Avenue and was making a left turn.

Larocca struck the Yukon and was severely injured. Larocca, who was not wearing a helmet, was air-lifted to St Joe's Hospital where he was listed in critical condition.
