A search is underway after Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a motorcycle crash sent a driver off an overpass and 100 feet to the ground.
Two motorcycles were traveling east on I-4, west of 50th Street in Tampa around 3:33 p.m., when they collided and struck the south shoulder barrier wall, according to a crash report. In the impact, one of the motorcyclists, 35-year-old Eric Lee Jordan, was “ejected over the side of the overpass and fell approximately 100 feet,” officials say.
Jordan died from his injuries after being taken to Tampa General Hospital.
The other motorcycle driver fled the scene and left his passenger, a 30-year-old woman, behind, troopers say.
