TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — One person is dead and one person has been taken to the hospital after a motorcycle-involved crash at the intersection of West Tennessee Street and Blountstown Street.

The crash occurred just after 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

The Tallahassee Police Department says a preliminary investigation indicates both the car and the motorcyclist had solid green lights at the intersection where the crash occurred.

The driver of the car, who has not been identified, then tried to turn left from Tennessee Street onto Blountstown Street but turned in front of the oncoming motorcycle, causing the crash.

The motorcycle’s operator, who also was not identified, was taken to the hospital where they died from their injuries. The other passenger on the motorcycle is still receiving treatment at a local hospital.

No one was injured in the other involved car.

"There are elements of this case which are still under investigation, and there is no more information to release at this time," police wrote in a release. Police have not said whether or not there will be charges filed in this case.

TPD is asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash, but did not speak with an officer on scene, or anyone with information about the crash to please call 850-891-4200 and ask to speak with the Traffic Homicide Unit. They may also remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS.
