On Sunday, a Tampa motorcycle accident left one man dead and critically injured his wife, who was riding on the back of the cycle. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, neither one was wearing a helmet.
Troopers said Gregory L. Lewis, 55, was driving a Harley-Davidson northbound on Interstate 275 when he veered across multiple lanes and hit a concrete wall. The impact of the motorcycle crash sent Lewis and his passenger, 52-year-old Bonnie Lewis, over the wall. They landed on the grassy shoulder below.
Gregory Lewis was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Emergency medical responders took Bonnie Lewis to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where she was listed in critical condition as of Monday.
