Motorcyclist rushed to hospital after Tarpon Springs collision

TARPON SPRINGS — A 51-year-old motorcyclist was rushed to the hospital early Monday after a collision threw him from his Harley-Davidson, officials said.

Charles Richard Lloyd of Dunedin was driving his 2007 Harley northbound on U.S. 19 just after 4:15 a.m. when he lost control of his motorcycle, police said.

Adriana Starr Ossa, 27, of Palm Harbor was driving behind Lloyd when he lost control and rear-ended the motorcycle, police said.

Lloyd flew from his motorcycle and was hit by a car, which didn't stop, police said.

Lloyd was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital with severe injuries.

Ossa was unharmed.

An investigation is ongoing. Witnesses are encouraged to call Officer Jose Yourgules of the Tarpon Springs Police Department at (727) 938-2849.
