A Hit and Run Crash Monday Leaves Parrish Motorcyclist In Critical Condition Manatee County


MANATEE COUNTY – FHP announced a man from Parrish is in critical condition after being struck during a hit-and-run while riding a motorcycle Monday afternoon.

The deadly collision began as a 56-year-old-man from Parrish, Florida was riding a motorcycle eastbound on US 301, east of the intersection with 45th Avenue East.

The driver of the motorcycle was then taken to an area hospital for emergency medical treatment in critical condition.

After crashing into the motorcycle the driver of the SUV then fled the scene, continuing to travel east on US 301.

Officials from the Florida Highway Patrol stated that the SUV was described as a black, 2008-2010 Nissan sport utility vehicle with a Florida License plate. The black SUV also had damage on the front right side of the vehicle.

FHP has asked that anyone with information regarding this crash to contact the Florida Highway Patrol or crimestoppers.
