Seffner man killed after motorcycle runs red light, collides with SUV

MANGO — An 18-year-old Seffner man died late Monday after his motorcycle collided with a sport utility vehicle and he was thrown into it, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Daniel Jonathon Wisnesky was pronounced dead at the scene.

About 10 p.m. Monday, Wisnesky was riding east on State Road 574 west of the Interstate 75 entrance ramp. A Ford Explorer driven by 51-year-old Jose David Perez of Riverview was traveling west.

Perez, who had a green light, was turning left when Wisnesky ran a red light and collided with the SUV, according to the patrol. Wisnesky was thrown from the motorcycle and into the rear seat of the SUV, which then flipped onto its side.
