On November 10, 2018 at approximately 1:10 a.m., Christopher Mayo was operating a 2002 Honda motorcycle westbound on Keysville Road East, just east of Lupton Place. Mayo was operating the motorcycle without the headlight on, in the dark. Kevin Williams, driving a 2010 Mercury Mariner, had just made a left turn from Lupton Place onto Keysville Road East to go eastbound towards his residence. Williams did not observe any oncoming headlights or vehicles, and pulled into the north shoulder of the roadway to check his mailbox. As Williams was entering the westbound lane, the motorcycle’s headlight came on and Mayo lost control of the motorcycle. Mayo was pronounced deceased at the scene by Hillsborough County Fire Rescue. Williams remained at the scene and called 911. Next of kin was notified.
