    Details:

    On September 27, 2017 at 11:33 p.m., a traffic crash with injuries occurred on Main St., just west of Leland Hawes Rd., in Thonotosassa. The accident occurred when the victim, who was wearing dark clothing, was walking east on an unlit portion of Main St. with a friend. The victim was walking within the eastbound lane and the friend was just off the south shoulder of the roadway. James Maye was driving a 2008 Chevrolet truck and failed to see the victim in the roadway. Due to an oncoming motorcycle with bright lights and the victim's dark attire, the front of Maye's truck struck the victim and Maye swerved to his left after striking the victim. The truck then ran over the victim who had been projected forward. The victim was transported by HCFR to TGH with critical injuries.
