Man Dies After July 3 Motorcycle Accident in Pace

The Florida Highway Patrol is still investigating after a tragic motorcycle accident on Saturday in Pace. No charges have been filed, but a vehicular homicide investigation is underway after the fatal crash over the Independence Day holiday weekend.

The motorcycle accident occurred near U.S. Highway 90 and Diamond Street in Pace. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on U.S. 90 at the time of the accident. A Chevy pickup truck driven by 23-year-old Ryan Johnson of Century, was heading northbound on Diamond Road but was stopped at a stop sign.

When Johnson tried to turn left onto westbound U.S. 90, he drove into the path of the motorcyclist, who struck the pickup truck and was ejected. The motorcyclist and the bike came to rest on the eastbound lanes of U.S. 90.

The injured motorcyclist, an unidentified male, was taken to West Florida Hospital and then later transferred to Sacred Heart Hospital. He succumbed to his injuries on Sunday, July 4th.

The motorcyclist is not being identified until his relatives can be notified.

Johnson and the two passengers in his truck were not injured. Depending on the outcome of the Florida Highway Patrol investigation, Johnson could face charges vehicular homicide as well as a wrongful death claim, as is the case in any fatal car accident.
