Biker Killed in Crash on I-75 in Hillsborough County


A motorcyclist was killed early Tuesday morning after he crashed into the back of a car on I-75, according to reports.

The crash happened at 3:05 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-75, near mile marker 250, in Hillsborough County.

Troopers believe the 27-year-old Ruskin man was riding a 2013 Suzuki motorcycle on the inside lane. At the same time, a 1999 Ford four-door was driving ahead of him, approaching Gibsonton Drive.

The man allegedly failed to slow or stop and crashed into the back of the Ford, according to troopers. He was thrown from the motorcycle and died at the scene of the crash.

Investigators say no charges will be filed at this time.
