ST. PETERSBURG — A 31-year-old man died Saturday after his motorcycle crashed late Friday night as it was exiting Interstate 275, authorities say.

Jacob B. Sommerkamp, 31, of St. Petersburg, lost control as he was exiting onto 118th Street North, and the motorcycle veered onto the paved shoulder before striking the barrier wall, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Both Sommerkamp and his passenger, Michael J. Valee, 32, also of St. Petersburg, were ejected and later taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Valee was listed in serious condition Saturday.
