Seffner motorcyclist killed in Pinellas crash

Pinellas County detectives are investigating the death of a Seffner man who crashed his motorcycle after fleeing a deputy. Daniel Lavoy Akins, 27, was seen quickly weaving through traffic in Oldsmar on Sunday night, the Sheriff's Office said. A deputy tried to pull him over for speeding, but he fled and the deputy did not follow. Police say Akins was thrown from his motorcycle when he failed to make a curve on Belcher Road in Palm Harbor. He was transported to Bayfront Medical Center, where he died Monday.
