The Florida Highway Patrol and Pasco County Sheriff’s Office investigate at the scene Tuesday in Trinity where a motorcyclist was killed.

TRINITY — A 25-year-old motor­cyclist from Tarpon Springs was killed Tuesday morning in a collision at the YMCA entrance.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Roderick Shane Napier was on his Yamaha sports bike westbound on Photonics Drive about 7:30 a.m. when a silver Infiniti M45 started to pull out of a driveway.

The car's driver, Jacqueline Bradley, 36, hit the brakes, partially blocking Photonics Drive, FHP said. Napier tried to avoid the collision, but he lost control of the bike, overturned and crashed into the Infiniti.

Napier died at the scene.
