Tampa man dies from moped accident earlier this month

TAMPA — The man who died Friday from injuries he received when his moped was struck by a truck earlier this month was Harold Wayne Kirby, 66, of Tampa, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Kirby was traveling east in the turn lane on Hillsborough Avenue on Oct. 19, trying to enter a restaurant parking lot, troopers said. At the same time, Michael Solomon Lambert, 29, of New Port Richey was in a Dodge pickup truck driving west on Hillsborough Avenue near Town 'N Country Boulevard. When the moped turned, Lambert's truck struck its right side.

Kirby was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he later died. He was not wearing a helmet.
