    On November 5, 2018 at 8:00 p.m., a 2010 Chevy Camaro, being operated by Shawn Roach, was sitting at a yellow flashing left turn signal to turn left from Gibsonton Drive onto Park Place Avenue. A 2014 Harley Davidson being operated by Charles Frietsch, was traveling eastbound on Gibsonton Drive with a solid green light. The Chevy Camaro failed to yield the right of way of the Harley Davidson. The Harley Davidson’s front struck the right side of the Chevy Camaro, ejecting the motorcycle operator. Speed on the motorcycle is a factor in this case. Charles Frietsch was transported to Tampa General Hospital where he died from his injuries.
