A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday morning after he was hit by a Jeep in Homosassa.
The crash occurred at 11:46 a.m. at the intersection of Kingston Road and U.S. 19.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 25-year-old Inglis man was riding his 2001 Honda motorcycle east on Kingston Road. At the same time, a 54-year-old Homosassa man was traveling south on U.S. 19 in a 2015 Jeep.
Troopers believe the 25-year-old stopped at the posted stop sign at the intersection, then drove into the path of the Jeep.
The Jeep hit the man’s left side, throwing him from the motorcycle, troopers said.
The man was taken by air to Bayonet Point Medical Center, where he died from his injuries.
Investigators have said no charges will be filed.
