20-year-old motorcyclist dies after Seminole crash

SEMINOLE — A 20-year-old Ruskin man died Saturday after his motorcycle crashed into a pickup truck near War Veterans' Memorial Park.

Justin J. Johnson was heading east on Bay Pines Boulevard N at about 2:45 p.m. when a 2002 Toyota Tundra driven by Robert Sterner, 67, made a left turn in front of his path, Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies said.

Johnson, who was wearing a helmet, crashed into the side of the pickup, which was pulling a trailer with a Pontoon boat. He died in a local hospital.

Sterner, of Seminole, and four of the Tundra's passengers were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The crash remained under investigation Saturday night, deputies said. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor.
