Riverview motorcyclist dies in crash

RIVERVIEW — A motorcyclist died Sunday after a car veered into his lane and hit him on Boyette Road south of FishHawk Boulevard, according to sheriff's officials.

Bruce Allen Perry, 54, of Riverview was riding a 2011 Harley Davidson south on Boyette Road about 1:20 p.m. at a point where the road curved to the left. A 2009 Ford Fusion, traveling north, crossed the center line there and hit the motorcycle, sheriff's officials said.

Perry was taken to Brandon Regional Hospital, where he died.

The driver of the car, Estrella Consepsion Santana, 18, and a passenger, Colon Santana, 15, both of Riverview, were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

It was not clear why the car crossed the center line. An investigation was ongoing.
