A 47-year-old New Port Richey man was killed in a motorcycle crash in Pasco County Wednesday night.

The crash occurred about 11:45 p.m. on Rowan Road near Massachusetts Avenue. The motorcyclist was southbound on Rowan Road when he lost control and crashed, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.

Troopers said the man was not wearing a helmet.

The highway patrol did not release the man’s name because of its interpretation of Marsy’s Law, a voter-approved amendment to the state Constitution that was meant to protect crime victims but that deprives the public of information long available under Florida’s public records law.
