A motorcyclist died Saturday night after crashing into a pickup truck that turned in front of him on U.S. 301, authorities said.
Bradley Near, 45, of Zephyrhills was traveling north on U.S. 301 around 8:50 p.m. when a southbound Ford F-150 crossed into his path trying to turn onto State Road 39. The vehicles collided, and Near was ejected, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Near was taken to Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, where he later died.
The driver of the pickup, 44-year-old Tammy Swanson of Zephyrhills, and her two passengers were not injured.
Charges are pending, the FHP said.
