A Crystal River man died Tuesday after investigators said his motorcycle crashed into a traffic sign in Dunnellon.
The crash happened at 1:08 a.m. on County Road 488 and Diamond D. Lane in Dunnellon.
According to deputies, Marie Bunts, 53, called 911 to report that she and her boyfriend, Randy L. Boose, 59, were in a motorcycle accident, and that she couldn't find Boose.
Deputies arrived at the scene and found Boose unconscious and not alert. They began performing CPR until emergency crews arrived and pronounced him dead at the scene.
Bunts was taken to Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center. Deputies did not release details about her condition.
Deputies said it appears as though the motorcycle left the roadway and drove onto the shoulder, then crashed into a traffic sign. Both Boose and Bunts were thrown from the motorcycle.
The investigation continues.
