ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — A Pensacola man is dead after he crashed into a truck while riding his motorcycle, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The 41-year-old motorcycle driver was heading westbound on Gulf Beach Highway at 11:24 p.m. Wednesday while an 81-year-old woman driving a Ford F-150 was heading southbound on Plateau Road, according to an FHP news release.
