Motorcyclist killed in crash with pickup truck in Dunedin

DUNEDIN — A Dunedin man died early Friday when his motorcycle collided with a pickup truck, Pinellas County sheriff's deputies said.

The crash happened at Curlew and Fisher roads at 6:45 a.m., authorities said.

Daryl Miles, 44, the driver of the motorcycle, was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:26 a.m.

Jordan Francis, 16, was driving the pickup, a Nissan Frontier, and his sister, Brenda Francis, 15, was a passenger. They both were taken to Mease Countryside Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

A third vehicle driven by Kerry Sullivan, 36, was struck by debris from the crash, causing minor damage to the vehicle. Sullivan was not injured.

According to a Sheriff's Office report, Miles was traveling east on Curlew Road approaching Fisher Road. Jordan Francis was making a left turn from northbound Fisher onto westbound Curlew when the collision occurred. Deputies are still investigating to determine who was at fault, authorities said.

Bay News 9 aerial footage showed the motorcycle in two pieces Miles was not wearing a helmet.

Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the case.
