INVERNESS – A Lecanto woman was pronounced dead after an accident involving a motorcycle and a pickup truck on East Gulf to Lake Highway. The incident occurred just after 5:30 pm on Monday afternoon.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Troy Lovett, a 44-year-old Bushnell man was traveling westbound on East Gulf to Lake Highway (SR 44) along with 31-year-old Autumn Larson in the passenger seat of his 2006 Ford F-150 when he attempted to make a u-turn at the intersection of SR 44 and South Tighe Drive.

While attempting the u-turn, Lovett entered the path of a 2008 Yamaha V-Star motorcycle that was traveling eastbound on SR 44. The driver of the motorcycle, 55-year-old Joel Talley, did not have enough time to react and collided with the passenger side of the F-150.
