A motorcyclist was killed Thursday after he was involved in a collision with another vehicle in Homosassa.
The crash occurred at 11:14 p.m. Wednesday on U.S. 19 near West Miss Maggie Drive.
The Florida Highway Patrol claims the 33-year-old motorcyclist was traveling south in the outside lane of U.S. 19 when a 2014 Chevy Impala pulled out of a parking lot and into his path.
The man swerved to avoid hitting the Impala, which caused his motorcycle to overturn. He was transported to Bayonet Point Regional Medical Center, where he died from his injuries the following day.
According to officials, charges are pending in this case.
