Motorcyclist Crashes on Florida Highway After 'Taunting' Police Officers
Police in Florida released footage on May 3 showing a dramatic crash on US-19 in which a motorcyclist suffered serious injuries.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said 21-year-old Ryan Decubellis was driving his 2017 Suzuki Motorcycle northbound on US Highway 19 North with a group of motorcyclists when he drove past two Pinellas deputies and accelerated at a “high rate of speed.” Sergent Spencer Gross told local media that Decubellis was taunting the deputies.
Decubellis crashed into a car driven by 54-year-old Scott Colletti, who was making a left hand turn across the road, police said.
Colletti sustained minor injuries while Decubellis sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash.
Police said Decubellis pleaded guilty to charges of Reckless Driving with Property Damage and Personal Injury and No Motorcycle Endorsement.
