The Florida Highway Patrol is seeking information after a 36-year-old Riverview man was killed in a Friday afternoon crash.
Troopers are looking for the driver of a black Dodge Ram 1500, according to a media release from the Florida Highway Patrol. The truck was last seen traveling westbound on Causeway Boulevard, from 78th Street in Hillsborough County, the release said.
A motorcyclist was traveling west on Causeway Boulevard at what troopers described as “a high rate of speed” when the agency said he tried to pass a pickup truck and struck the back of the vehicle around 2:39 p.m.
The motorcycle overturned just east of South 86th Street and the man was ejected, the release said. The motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.
The truck driver fled the scene following the crash, troopers said.
Anyone with information regarding the crash or suspect vehicle should contact the Florida Highway Patrol by calling *FHP or 813-558-1800.
