Motorcyclist dies after accident with SUV

A motorcyclist died Thursday afternoon in Tampa after a collision with a Land Rover.

Troopers said Jean G. Mezidor, 39, of Tampa attempted a U-turn from the westbound turn lane of Causeway Boulevard near the intersection of 54th Street and drove into the path of a Honda motorcycle driven by Ismael S. Santana, 37 of Tampa.

Santana tried to avoid a collision, but the front of the Land Rover collided with the back of the motorcycle, and Santana was thrown to the road, troopers said.

He was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
