Motorcyclist killed in collision with truck on Lithia-Pinecrest Road

LITHIA — A 22-year-old man died this afternoon when his motorcycle collided with a pick-up truck on Lithia Pinecrest Road.

Here's what the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says happened:

Jeffrey K. Moses, of 1906 E. Keysville Road was riding his 2001 Honda motorcycle north on Lithia Pinecrest when a 2007 Ford F-150 turned left across his lane at Fish Hawk Trails Drive.

The motorcycle hit the passenger door of the truck driven by 82-year-old Leo D. Quinn, and Moses was thrown from the bike. He was not wearing a helmet and he died at the accident scene.

Quinn only had minor injuries and was not taken to the hospital, said Vida Morgan a Sheriff's spokeswoman. Lithia Pinecrest Road was shut down to one lane for two hours, Morgan said, but it has since reopened.
