Motorcyclist identified in fatal Indian Rocks Causeway crash

INDIAN ROCKS BEACH — A motorcyclist who died in a crash Monday night on the Indian Rocks Causeway has been identified by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Jacob Austin Scott, 26, of Seminole was driving his 2000 Kawasaki 1100 Supersport with a suspended license on the eastbound span of the causeway, the Sheriff's Office reported.

Scott's high speed was a factor in the single-vehicle crash, which remains under investigation, said deputies. Scott died on the scene just before 8 p.m.
