St. Petersburg motorcyclist killed after crashing in Coquina Key

ST. PETERSBURG — A 35-year-old St. Petersburg man was killed early Saturday after he crashed his motorcycle into a parked car on Coquina Key, police said.

Philip Michael Towler was riding a 1982 Honda motorcycle east on Neptune Drive SE about 2:50 a.m. when he veered off the road and rode into a yard near Manatee Drive, police said. Towler struck a bush, and then the automobile.

He was pronounced dead at Bayfront Medical Center at 6:50 a.m., police said. Police said alcohol was a factor in the crash.
