Riverview motorcyclist killed in crash on U.S. 301

TAMPA — A 56-year-old Riverview man died Monday evening on U.S. 301 at the entrance to Interstate 75 when his 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle collided with a Dodge pickup driven by a Brandon teen.

The Florida Highway Patrol says James R. Clanton was riding south on U.S. 301 about 6:55 p.m. when he collided with a Dodge Dakota driven by Sydnee J. Jones, 16. The impact hurled Clanton into the truck's windshield, then onto the road. He died at the scene.

No charges have been filed, pending further investigation. Clanton had been wearing a motorcycle helmet.
