A man and woman were found dead early Sunday near a motorcycle on the shoulder of Gunn Highway, according to the Hillborough County Sheriff’s Office.

A passerby noticed the bike about 6 a.m., between Racetrack and Copeland roads, deputies said. When the person pulled over, they found two bodies near the bike and called 911.

Deputies believe the man and woman were riding the motorcycle southbound on the road when whomever was driving failed to turn properly and hit a road sign, throwing both people from the bike.

Neither the man or woman had been identified by 9 a.m. Neither was wearing a helmet, deputies said.

A half-mile portion of Gunn Highway near the scene of the crash is closed as the Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate.

Deputies released no further information.
