Tampa motorcyclist dies after Sunday crash near Brooksville

BROOKSVILLE — A Tampa man who was hospitalized with severe injuries Sunday after his motorcycle slammed into a car south of Brooksville died later that evening, the Florida Highway Patrol reported Thursday.

Theo E. Angelakos, 52, was taken to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point in Hudson after his 2002 Triumph motorcycle crashed into a car driven by Stephen L. Vickers, 58, of Brooksville. The FHP confirmed Angelakos' death after they notified his out-of-state next of kin.

Angelakos was traveling west on Powell Road, approaching Emerson Road, when Vickers' 2002 Mercedes-Benz turned into the path of his motorcycle, troopers said. Angelakos was wearing a helmet.

The crash remains under investigation, the FHP said Thursday.
