A motorcyclist was killed Tuesday night after crashing into a car on McCall Road in Englewood East.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 25-year-old Englewood man was driving a Ford Mustang west on McCall Road, approaching Sea Mist Drive just before 10 p.m. A 25-year-old Port Charlotte man on a Honda Motorcycle was traveling east on McCall road, likewise approaching Sea Mist Drive. The Mustang turned left onto Sea Mist Drive, and the motorcycle crashed into its side.
The motorcyclist was transported to Englewood Hospital with critical injuries and later pronounced dead. The crash remains under investigation, partly to determine if the motorcycle’s front headlight was on at the time.
