According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a Micanopy man, 42, died in a motorcycle crash on Saturday night after he turned his cycle in front of an oncoming vehicle.
Mark D. Wiggins was riding east on Silver Lake Drive as Lisa M. Mason, 36, of Palatka was traveling west on Silver Lake drive. Both were driving Suzuki motorcycles. As they approached the intersection, Wiggins pulled into Mason’s path because he did not see her turn left. The two motorcycles collided and the riders were taken to Putnam Medical Center, where Wiggins later died. Mason survived the motorcycle accident with minor injuries.
The Florida Highway Patrol said both drivers had alcohol in their system and charges in the crash are pending.
