Navarre, FL – A motorcycle crash taking place Tuesday morning on U.S Highway 98 leaves a biker dead, stated the Florida Highway Patrol.
The victim, 22-year old Jeremy Ross was riding his 2016 Kawasaki while riding west in the inside lane of U.S. 98 when he approached a 2003 Ford SUV driven by 34-year old Jamaal Nicholas. Nicholas was stopped in traffic waiting to make a left turn at Fontainbleau Court when Ross did not stop and rear-ended the SUV. The impact caused Ross to be thrown into the westbound left turn lane.
Initially, a medical helicopter was scheduled but was canceled due to fog. Ross was found unresponsive by EMS and firefighters at around 8:20 a.m. He was wearing a helmet, said FHP.
Ross was pronounced dead at Gulf Breeze Hospital.
No one else was injured in the crash.
