TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The Tallahassee Police Department says it is investigating a crash in which a pickup truck hit and killed a motorcyclist on West Tharpe Street early Sunday morning.

According to TPD’s incident report, the crash happened at 2:15 a.m. Sunday when the truck’s driver missed a turn into the Seminole Grand apartment complex, located on the street’s 1400 block. The driver then made a U-turn and hit a motorcycle, throwing the rider off the bike, TPD says.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene after first responders tried to save his life, the report states.

The 1400 block of West Tharpe St. was closed so investigators could process the crime scene.

TPD’s traffic homicide investigators believe several people were in the area when the crash happened, and they’re asking anyone who may have seen the crash to come forward.

TPD Public Information Officer Alicia Turner says the driver of the truck stayed on the scene and cooperated with officers.
